Philippus Van Limborch, a Dutch theologian, nephew of Episcopius, born in Amsterdam, June 19, 1633, died there, April 30, 1712. In 1657 he became pastor of the congregation of Remonstrants at Gouda, and from 1668 till his death was professor of theology in the Remonstrant college at Amsterdam. As an Arminian theologian he ranks next to Arminius and Episcopius, and was distinguished equally for learning and for liberality. Locke, who was his correspondent, dedicated to him his Epis-tolade Tolerantia. Limborch's principal work is his Theologia Christiana (4to, Amsterdam, 1686; English translation with additions, by William Jones, 2 vols. 8vo, London, 1702), which was the first and most complete exposition of Arminian doctrine, and was undertaken at the request of the Remonstrants. He also wrote, besides many minor works, De Veritate Religionis Christiana (4to, Gouda, 1687); His-toria Inquisitionis (fol., Amsterdam, 1692; English translation by Samuel Chandler, 2 vols. 4to, London, 1731); and a commentary on the Acts and the Epistles to the Romans and Hebrews (fol., Rotterdam, 1711).
