Timelapse Dordrecht

National Synod 1618/19

The town also played a prominent part in the church history. In 1618 and 1619 the protestants from all over Europe settled their religious and political quarrels here. The National Synod, a marathon meeting of 180 sessions, led to important social changes. The Calvinist teaching was established and the (enlightened) Remonstrant view was overthrown. The members of the Synod took another far-reaching decision. They had the bible translated into Dutch. This, known as the ‘Statenvertaling’ [State Translation] became the basis for the language which is now written and spoken in the Netherlands.
