The Research Center Puritanism and Piety (ReCePP) was founded on 7 January 2020 and is a collaboration between the Hersteld Hervormd Seminary (HHS), located at the Faculty of Religion and Theology of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and the Theological University of Apeldoorn (TUA).
Among other things, ReCePP collaborates with the Puritan Research Center (PRC), which is part of the Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary (PRTS) in Grand Rapids. It also collaborates with Hapdong Theological Seminary in South Korea, which has set up a similar centre.
ReCePP is designed to further research on piety movements in the early modern period (1500-1800), such as Puritanism, Dutch Further Reformation, and Pietism. The centre further aims to make this knowledge accessible to church and society.
