AbstractJohn Robinson, minister of the English Separatist Church in Leiden and pastor of the Pilgrim Fathers, was renowned in his times as an accomplished reformed theologian. He engaged in public debate the famous arminian Episcopius, professor of theology in the university of Leiden, and wrote one of the most widely-circulated defence of the Synod of Dort. Nevertheless, his strong separatist stance distanced him gradually from synodal and Presbyterian Calvinism; in his last years he advanced concepts of religious life and ideas of church government close to the anti-confessionalist tendencies of the spiritualists.
