Synod of Holland


The synod of Holland was an ecclesiastical assembly of the Reformed Church that gathered periodically to discuss matters of faith and discipline, and to certify the status of its members. The most famous assembly of this kind was the Synod of Dort held in 1618-1619 in Dordrecht, Netherlands, which was attended by delegates from all over Europe to settle the controversy over Arminianism, a rival interpretation of predestination.
