Tossing the Belgic Confession over the Wall

On the night of November 1 and 2 in 1561, Guido de Brès threw a specimen of the Dutch Profession of Faith (Confessio Belgica) over the castle wall at Doornik. The Theological University of Kampen will commemorate that event on Tuesday November 1 with a symposium.

It sounds fantastic (see here for the lineup).  I’ll be in Birmingham at exactly the same time for a different Reformation conference (which will be great as well!).

Ah, the Reformation… those were the days when men were men and heretics were dealt with properly.  *Sigh*.

    I wonder what they would do with heretics? 😉
