Definition
the theological system of John Calvin and his followers emphasizing omnipotence of God and salvation by grace alone
  • Throughout there was a strange bitterness; an absence of consolatory gentleness; stern allusions to Calvinistic doctrines — election, predestination, reprobation — were frequent; and each reference to these points sounded like a sentence pronounced for doom.
