Leiden, Netherlands

1598 The theological faculty at the University of Leiden in Holland declared that the newly published books by Christopher Osterod and Andrew Voidovius came close to Islamic theology. The town magistrates banned them. Osterod, one of the most learned and active Socinian leaders, was converted to Socinianism during years spent as a minister in Poland.
