Fred van Lieburg is professor of Protestant history at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam and co-director of ReLiC, the VU Centre for Dutch Religious History.


In this study of the international pietist movement as in appeared amongst Dutch Calvinists and the Reformed Church in Holland, van Lieburg (Protestant history, Vrije U., Amsterdam) notes that Dutch pietism was a major influence in Eastern Europe and Scandinavia and in fact held its own beside England and Germany. He uses the personal accounts of 14 men and six women to explain how they came to their practices and beliefs about youth and vanity, the conversion process, the experience of the saints, marriage, the concept of the church, the world, and the Word, the Walk and writing.
