Loots, who specializes in early modern Neo-Latin scholarly publications, and Spaans, who works on early modern Dutch religious cultures, team up to translate and annotate Hoornbeeck's guide to converting the heathens. Many before him wrote such books, they say, but he brought to bear all the theoretical force of orthodox Reformed academic theology, and a keen eye to challenges and opportunities for success. Modern researchers find it a key text for understanding the exchanges between the Dutch Republic and the cultures and religions of Asia, Africa, and the Americas, as well as for studying the origins of comparative religion.
