SOLD: AR Penning 1619 Netherlands (the picture on the left)
Johannes Uytenbogaert (1557-1644) was a prominent religious figure during the early Dutch Republic. He helped to found the Remonstrant movement of the Reformed Dutch Church, which was in opposition to Maurice of Orange and the orthodox Calvinists. This led to his conviction by the Synod of Dordrecht in 1618 – he did not appear at the trial but fled the country. He lived in exile in Antwerp and Rouen until the death of Maurice in April 1625, when he was able to return in 1626 he continued to preach until his own death in 1644. This medal commemorates his refusal to attend the Synod: the obverse symbolizes the fact that the pressure put on him resulted in even finer discourse, while the reverse implies that Uytenbogaert was much too wise to accede to the invitation to attend the Synod, since he would have surely been convicted there (which, in fact, he was) and probably executed (as was the great Dutch patriot Johan von Oldenbarnevelt, another opponent of Maurice).
