The Reformed Church in Dutch Brazil (1630-1654) The Reformed Church in Dutch Brazil (1630-1654)

by Schalkwijk, Dr. F.L.

This book describes the history of a 17th century Reformed Church in Latin America. After a general introduction to Dutch Brazil (1630-1654), the author analyzes the church as to her organization, her position as a state-church, her servants, and her work. He deals with her relations with Jews, Roman Catholics, and Africans, and describes extensively the mission work among the Indians. Much attention is given to the question of religious liberty, especially in relation to Roman Catholics. It is a valuable contribution to the knowledge of Dutch overseas church and mission history. The original Portuguese version became a bestseller.
