- About this book
A comprehensive analysis of the so-called ‘Stinstra affair’, a controversy concerning the limits of religious toleration in the eighteenth-century Dutch Republic. The background and intellectual context of the debate are examined closely; due consideration is given to the influence of foreign writings. The appendices contain the texts (in Dutch, English and Latin) of two major contemporary writings on toleration.
