The Conclusion discusses the lasting impact and legacy of Arminius’s theology. Noting that his death (at a relatively young age) in a sense renders moot the question of whether or not Arminius “lost” his theological debates, the chapter surveys the rise of the Remonstrance movement and the subsequent Synod of Dordt, along with the variety of “Arminianisms” throughout the Netherlands and Anglo-American theology (including Methodism). The chapter notes the impact made by Arminius in political and ecclesial as well as theological life; here both Arminius’s theological work and his views of toleration left a significant imprint. The chapter summarizes some key theological themes, and the chapter reflects upon the continuing importance of the theology of Arminius.
