Volume 1 includes the original Acta Authentica of the synod, here published for the first time. Following the Acta Authentica, the corresponding acts, as first published in the Acta Synodi Nationalis ... Dordrechti Habitae (Leiden, 1620), are reprinted; these published Acta were a significantly revised version, for stylistic and political purposes, of the original Acta Authentica. Also included are the Acta Contracta, a topical summary of the Acta Authentica, and the minutes of the meetings of the state delegates, who represented the Dutch government at the synod; neither of these has been previously published. This volume begins with a general introduction to the Synod of Dordt and its context, an introduction to the Acta Authentica, the published Acta and Acta Contracta, and an introduction to the role of the state delegates and the minutes of their meetings.Forthcoming volumes: Vol. II: Preliminaries to the Synod, ca. 1000 pp. The Pro-Acta Sessions Procedural Debates with the RemonstrantsVol. III: Deliberations after the Expulsion of the Remonstrants, ca. 975 pp. The Canons of Dordt and its FormationVol. IV: Remonstrant Doctrinal Documents, ca. 1000 pp.Vol. V: The Judgments of the Nineteen Delegations on the Five Remonstrant Articles, ca. 850 pp.Vol. VI: Other Discipline Cases, ca. 900 pp. The Post-Acta Sessions Immediate Aftermath of the SynodVol. VII: Remonstrant Reports on the Synod, ca. 1100 pp.Vol. VIII: Journals and Reports of Foreign Delegates on the Synod, ca. 990 pp.Vol. IX: Journals and Reports of Dutch Delegates on the Synod, ca. 800 pp. Contemporary Letters about the Syno
