  Jacobus Arminius - LoveToKnow 1911
JACOBUS ARMINIUS (1560-1609), Dutch theologian, author of the modified reformed theology that receives its name of Arminian from him, was born at Oudewater, South Holland, on the 10th of October 1560.
Arminius, fresh from Geneva, familiar with the dialectics of Beza, appeared to many the man able to speak the needed word, and so, in 1589, he was simultaneously invited by the ecclesiastical court of Amsterdam to refute Coornhert, and by Martin Lydius, professor at Franeker, to combat the two infralapsarian ministers of Delft.
Arminius died, worn out by uncongenial controversy and ecclesiastical persecution, before his system had been elaborated into the logical consistency it attained in the hands of his celebrated successor, Simon Episcopius; but though inchoate in detail, it was in its principles clear and coherent enough.

 Jacobus Arminius
Most pointedly Arminius insists that grace is the love of God meeting humankind as sinful; grace is not a synonym for "decree" or "will" or "sovereignty"; i.e., grace is God's love addressing humans in their depravity rather than "affecting" them as creatures without reference to their sin.
Consonant with his understanding of the free will, Arminius eschewed the notion of the Christian life as the "state" of grace (and therefore static), preferring to understand it as dynamic: graced concurrence acknowledges and appropriates greater grace in an upward spiral that also finds the believer advancing in godliness through greater immersion in grace.
generation Magisterial Reformers, Arminius is a scholastic evincing immense affinities with the scholastic "family" whether Roman Catholic and predestinarian (Banez and Baius), Roman Catholic and non-predestinarian (Suarez and Molina), Protestant and predestinarian (Junius and Gomarus) or Protestant and non-predestinarian (his successors, Episcopius and Limborch).

 Biography of Jacobus Arminius
Arminius was suspected of heresy because he regarded the subscription to the symbolical books (strict adherence to confessions of faith or doctrinal statements of the church) as not binding and was ready to grant to the State more power in ecclesiastical matters than the strict Calvinists would admit.
When two of the professors of the University of Leyden, Junius and Trelcatius, died (1602), the curators called Arminius; and Franciscus Gomarus, the only surviving theological professor, protested, but he became reconciled after an interview with Arminius.
The latter entered upon his duties in 1603 with an address on the high-priestly office of Christ, and was made doctor of theology.

Jacobus Arminius would deny that he was a proponent of Pelagian heresy, because he did not teach against the concept of original sin as did Pelagius, but the fact remains that the two schools of belief are very similar and ultimately lead to the same actions by believers.
