An international exhibition entitled Work, pray, admire. New views on Calvinism and art will be hosted by the Dordrechts Museum from 10 November 2018 until 26 May 2019.
In 1618/1619 the city of Dordrecht organized the first and only international Synod in Early Modern Europe. At the Synod of Dordt, professors, ministers and politicians from Great Britain, Switzerland, the Dutch Republic and several German states gathered to solve theological questions concerning predestination, the church order and the future of Calvinism in Europe and beyond.
In 2018/2019 Dordrecht will commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Synod of Dordt with an international civic program which focuses on hospitality, Calvinist identity and language. These themes are inspired by the outcomes of the Synod; Dordrecht created an atmosphere to build a European network of Calvinists and decided to issue a new translation of the Bible in Dutch, known as the States Bible.
