This volume contains the proceedings of a conference "Hugo Grotius as a Theologian" (1992), held at the occasion of the retirement of professor Guillaume H. M. Posthumus Meyjes, the editor of Grotius' Meletius. Containing thirteen lectures, it is divided into three sections. In the first all Grotius' main theological works are discussed. The second section presents studies of Grotius' relationship to Erasmus, his polemics with Andr Rivet, his views on scholarly and religious developments in contemporary France, and his opinions on Jews and Judaism. Four lectures on the reception of Grotius' theological thought in the 17th and 18th centuries in Great Britain, Switzerland and the Netherlands, constitute the third section. In the appendix, a bibliography on the theme 'Grotius as a theologian' is provided.Table of ContentsPart I: Individual WorksGuillaume H. M.

The bibliography alone, complete for the period 1840-1993 in six out of the thirtheen subsections, would justify the expense."--J. L. North, Society for Old Testament Study, 1995."... this is a model festschrift. It focuses admirably on its theme, and each individual essay contributes something worthwile. It is a fitting tribute to a fine scholar."--Scott Mandelbrote, Dutch Review of Church History. 1995
