400 Years Synod of Dordrecht in 2018/2019
In a six-months program, Hollands oldest city shows how revolutionary the Synod was and what a great and lasting effect it had on Protestantism, culture and society; not only in Europe but also in Asia, Africa and America. And of course in the Netherlands, which has been regarded since as a Calvinist country.
The whole European Calvinist family was represented in Dordrecht 400 years ago. The meeting lasted no less than 180 sessions! Trade, migration and missions spread its mental legacy around the world from the 17th century on till now. We invite everyone to visit Dordrecht, see the beautiful city and enjoy our program.
There are several festivities during the “Ode aan de Synode”. A selection of the most important exhibitions and activities is available in english as well.
