Dordrechter Synode

the Dordrechter Synode (pass from that 17. Century)

the Dordrechter Synode was a national church meeting of the Netherlands reformed church, under participation of foreign reformed churches, which took place from 1618 to 1619 in Dordrecht.

Topics for discussion were and. A. the condemnation of the free-intimate theory of the Remonstranten, the new Netherlands Bible translation (state Bible or state translation) and the church order of the church, which became later the Nederlands Hervormde Kerk (Netherlands church reformed).

The resolutions of the Synode, the so-called training rules of Dordrecht, are this very day of importance for the reformed churches.
