A rticle 35 on the subject of "the Homilies" is unique among the reformed churches of Europe.

But there was no...
I have been warmly commending, Peter van Mastricht’s Theoretico-Practica Theologia for a decade. However, students have wondered whether my promises that someone was translating it into English were empty. Now that these promises are finally coming to fruition with the publication of this first...
