VAN WYK, Barry. The Canons of Dordt: Inclusive or exclusive?. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2018, vol.52, n.2, pp.1-14. ISSN 2305-0853.

This article starts with a historic background of the relevant circumstances which should be acknowledged to understand the reasons why a Synod of this stature was held at Dordrecht in 1618-1619. In view of the main agenda resulted from the Remonstrance formulated by the Remonstrants in 1610, most parts of the Synod were attended to discuss the Remonstrance which ended with the Remonstrants being suspended from the Synod. The question is also answered whether the Canons of Dordt are exclusive or inclusive.
