Review "Together these essays present a very valuable discussion of the practice of religious toleration set in the social and religious context of the Dutch Republic and confronted with the often very divergent principles of tolerance and intolerance." Renaissance Quarterly "Dutch society was an interesting amalgam of intense religious passion combined with a willingness to endure other faiths, and these essays provide useful perspectives on a fasinating topic. Recommended for all academic libraries." Catholic Library World "These essays provide useful perspectives on a fascinating topic. Recommended for all academic libraries." Choice "The strength of this collection is that it provides much more than a series of detailed case studies. The synthesis provided by the earlier essays in the volume provides the broad context against which the experiences of different religious communities can be understood. It makes an important contribution to the literature on religious toleration during the early modern period." Sixteenth Century Journal Andrew Spicer, Oxford Brookes University Book Description Dutch society has enjoyed a reputation, or notoriety, for permissiveness since the sixteenth century. The Dutch Republic in the Golden Age was the only society that tolerated religious dissenters of all persuasions in early modern Europe. Paradoxically, it was committed to a strictly Calvinist public Church and also to the preservation of religious plurality. R. Po-chia Hsia and Henk van Nierop have brought together a group of leading historians from the UK, the US and the Netherlands. Their outstanding essays probe the history and myth of Dutch religious toleration.
