1. Brandt, Caspar, The Life of James Arminius, D. D. (tr. Guthrie, John, Nashville, 1857), pp. 44–45. Caspar Brandt, son of the Remonstrant historian, Gerard Brandt the elder, wrote this important biography in the late seventeenth century.
2. See, for instance, the articles on Arminius in the 9th and 11th editions of Encyclopedia Britannica and in Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics.
3. See Hodge, A. A., Outlines of Theology (London, 1879), p. 105, and Nicole, Roger as reported in Christianity Today, IV, 1 (10. 12, 1959), p. 6. A particularly violent attack on the character of Arminius is found in Warburton, Ben A., Calvinism (Grand Rapids, 1955), pp. 49 ff. Says Warburton: “That much cunning had been practised by Arminius there is little room to doubt, and that he was equally dishonest is clear.”
4. Quoted in Schaff, Philip, History of the Christian Church (New York, 1910), VIII, 599.
7. Brandt, Gerard, History of the Reformation in the Low Countries (4 vols., London, 1720 ff.), II, 72. Gerard Brandt's History, written from a distinctly partisan Remonstrant viewpoint to be sure, is valuable for the inclusion of source materials and references from this period.
9. Gerard Brandt describes these matters in great detail.
10. The important question of the relationship of Beza to the Dutch ministry is discussed, with important source materials included, in Vries, Herman de [de Heekelingen], Genève: Pépinière du Calvinisme Hollandaise (2 vols.). Vol. I, Les Etudiants des Pays-Bas à Genève au Temps de Théodore de Bèze (Fribourg, 1918). Vol. II, Correspondance des Elèves de Théodore de Bèze après leur Départ de Genéve (The Hague, 1924).

28. Notice that Arminius does not attempt to solve the problem of predestination by denying its double nature. Emil Brunner's denial of double predestination has the merit of bypassing the notion of double foreknowledge but entails nonetheless the position that some men may be finally lost. See his The Christian Doctrine of God (Phadelphia, 1950), p. 315et passim.
