Synod on the freedom of conscience : a thorough examination during the gathering held in the year 1582 in the City of Freetown by D. V Coornhert( )

26 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and Dutch and held by 1,931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first English translation of a pivotal work in the history of religious tolerance. In Synod on the Freedom of Conscience (1582) the Dutch humanist Dirck Volckertszoon Coornhert (1522-1590) provides one of the first book-length pleas for religious freedom published in the West. His central concern in his writings and exchanges with ministers of the Reformed Church was the safeguarding of freedom of conscience, the chief cause, he believed, for which the struggle against Habsburg Spain was being waged. The imaginary Synod, held in "Freetown," gathers together chief Catholic and Protestant leaders and theologians who engage in spirited debates on such matters as religious diversity, the freedom to criticize, the norms used to determine what constitutes heresy, freedom of the press, and the role of the state in the suppression of heresy. Each session concludes with remarks by the irenic Gamaliel (Coornhert's alter ego), who shows that both parties sin equally on the side of intolerance and pleads for the tolerant alternative. In this work Coornhert continues an Erasmian theme which would be picked up again in the following century by the Remonstrants and Hugo Grotius
Politieke geschriften : opstand en religievrede by D. V Coornhert( )

10 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Politieke geschriften geeft publicist Dirck Volckertzoon Coornhert (1522-1590) op indringende wijze zijn visie op de politieke situatie in zijn tijd. De Opstand verkeert in een diepe crisis, de tegenstander is overmachtig en de opstandelingen zijn onderling verdeeld. Met pragmatische en politiekprincipiële argumenten verdedigt Coornhert in zijn brieven en traktaten de vrijheid van religie. En altijd klinkt daarin zijn diepste overtuiging door: geloof en dwang gaan niet samen. Dit is Coornhert op zijn scherpst: ontgoocheling en fel verzet. Dirk Volkertzoon Coornhert (1522-1590) was een vooraanstaand medestander van Willem van Oranje. Gedreven en veelzijdig publicist als hij was, heeft hij zich ingezet voor een zeer ruim opgevatte vrijheid van godsdienst. Zijn werk is een pleidooi voor verdraagzaamheid, geschreven met veel gevoel voor urgentie op een cruciaal moment van onze vaderlandse geschiedenis. In de Bibliotheca Dissidentium Neerlandicorum verschijnen publicaties op het gebied van de geschiedenis van het Nederlandse (religieuze, filosofische en artistieke) non-conformisme van circa 1350 tot onze tijd. De DBN omvat een reeks tekstedities en een reeks studies over belangrijke non-conformistische auteurs. De publicaties van de DBN verschijnen bij Amsterdam University Press als uitgaven van de Coornhert Stichting, onder redactionele verantwoordelijkheid van het Coornhert Centrum
Zedekunst dat is wellevenskunste : vermids waarheyds kennisse vanden mensche, vande zonden ende vande dueghden nu alder eerst beschreven int neerlandsch by D. V Coornhert( Book )

20 editions published between 1586 and 2015 in Dutch and English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Ethics', published (anonymously) by Coornhert in 1586, is a remarkable publication for a number of reasons: it is the first work on ethics written in a European vernacular; it is a mature work, appearing four years before Coornhert's death, and summarizes a lifetime of writing and thinking about the good life; it is considered to be fundamentally pagan because of the absence in 'Zedekunst' of biblical references or any direct mention of Christ. Asked why he did not write about such things as the future establishment of God's kingdom on earth, Coornhert answered: "Because I have a greater desire to learn how to live well, than to learn how to know much". This is the first English translation of this important work. It will enhance our insight into the ethical outlook of this prominent freethinker and controversialist of the early Dutch Republic."--Back cover
