Teellinck, Willem 1579-1629

Willem Teellinck (January 4, 1579 - April 8, 1629) was an influential Dutch pastor during the Further Reformation in the Netherlands.

The New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge, Volume 11 - 1911 (see page 287)


Teellinck wrote at least 127 manuscripts including 20 full length books, although not all were printed and some were printed after his death. His first work was published in 1608, and was entitled The Love of the Fatherland. It was about the need of the government to enact laws to help restrain sin. Most of his works however, dealt more with personal piety or exegesis of the Bible. This includes his longest work, The Key of Devotion, which is about 800 pages. However, Teellinck did also write works against the Roman Catholic Church and Arminianism. His book The True Path of Godliness has recently been translated into English.
