After many years of hard work by an international team of experts, volume 2.1 of the edition of the Acts of the Synod of Dordt has been published. This volume encountered the hardships of corona with libraries and archives being closed, and above all the passing away of one of the key scholars for this volume, Dr. Joke Roelevink. In spite of all this a team of editors has managed to complete this massive and important volume and it is with pride that the book was presented in Apeldoorn recently. It is expected that the next volumes can appear at regular pace over the next years.
