Five Points

Five Points the five doctrines controverted between the Calvinists and Arminians, viz. predestination, extent of the atonement, grace, free-will, and final perseverance. The quinquarticular-controversy in England was a dispute which arose at Cambridge in 1594 respecting the above points. In 1626 two fruitless conferences were held on these points; sand in 1630 bishop Davenant preached at court on. these disputed matters, and thereby gave great offence to Charles I. The next year the controversy was revived at Oxford and in Ireland, of which archbishop Usher was then primate. The king issued certain injunctions concerning the bounds within which these points might be discussed. SEE ARMINIANISM, CALVINISM; SEE DORT.
