The Emergence of Tolerance in the Dutch Republic

Limits and debates; a comparative view of Dutch toleration in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries

This volume is the fruit of the colloquium “Les Pays-Bas, carrefour de la tolérance aux Temps Modernes”, held in Wassenaar, the Netherlands, in 1994.
Toleration in the strict sense of the word was very much against the grain of sixteenth-century European history. This volume charts the emergence and vicissitudes of the concept of tolerance and its practical implications in the Dutch Republic, from the revolt against Spain in the sixteenth century to the early eighteenth century.
