Many scholars are skeptical that Dutch theologian Jacobus Arminius (1560-1609) had a doctrine of assurance at all, but Stanglin (historical theology, Harding U.) contends that he did. Indeed, he says, the perennial issue of assurance in Reformation and post-Reformation theology was one of the great motiving factors behind his entire doctrine of salvation, which became very contentious in the low countries and beyond. He begins by setting out the background of the debate, then discusses in turn the ontology and epistemology of salvation.
