From Baptism to Heaven: 
The Synopsis Purioris Theologiae (1625) on the Christian Life 
Symposium May 20, 2022 in Leuven, Belgium

In 2010, the Classic Reformed Theology Research Group (OGTh), an international group of scholars, began work on a new, three-volume edition of the Synopsis, with the Latin text, an English translation, and annotations. The third and final volume, containing disputation 43-52, was published by Brill in 2020. Due to the Covid-crisis, the launch of this volume was postponed till Friday May 20, 2022, when it will be presented at a symposium, hosted by the Evangelische Theologische Faculteit Leuven. During the symposium, a number of experts will reflect on aspects of both the third Volume and the complete Synopsis.

The Classic Reformed Theology Research Group (dutch: Werkgezelschap Oude Gereformeerde Theologie, OGTh) was founded in 1982 for the purpose of studying early modern scholastic theology. In 2010 it started the project “Synopsis Purioris Theologiae (1625)”, which was finished in July 2020 with the publication of the third and final volume of a bilingual, annotated edition of the Leiden Synopsis (Leiden: Brill, 2014-2020). For further information, see the Publications page.

In 2020, OGTh started its current project “Early Modern Reformed Disputations on Divine Providence”.
