Van scheurmakers, onruststokers en geheime opruijers… Van scheurmakers, onruststokers en geheime opruijers…

De Afscheiding in Overijssel

by Pereboom, F., Hille, H., Reenders, H., editors

Many authors writing about the Secession of 1834 either agree or disagree with the beliefs of the Seceders who were known by various labels. Commonly known as Afgescheidenen, the Netherlands Reformed Church called them schismatics (scheurmakers), while the government looked at them as troublemakers (onruststokers) or secret agitators (geheime opruijers). In this book seven historians review events surrounding the Secession. They examine the story of the persecuted Seceders whose harassment was justified by an obscure law against rioters (at one point, a local mayor forcibly with pistol drawn ended a ‘forbidden' church service conducted at an isolated farm) and also provides the context in which these incidents could take place. Overijssel social history at its best. A $42.95 value. NOW on sale!
