Wilhelmus à Brakel PhD/ThM Course

Recently, Dr. Adriaan Neele, Director of the PRTS Doctoral Program and Professor of Historical Theology, had the privilege of teaching a PhD/ThM course on Wilhelmus à Brakel (1635-1711), a major representative of the Nadere Reformatie, and a contemporary of Gisbertus Voetius and Herman Witsius.
Twenty-one PhD and ThM students from five continents and eight countries participated in the course. For some that meant joining the Zoom meeting at 9:30 pm and for others it was 5:30 am.
Special thanks to Rev. Bartel Elshout, translator of à Brakel’s major work, The Christian’s Reasonable Service, for joining the lecture on the last day of class.
