Portrait of Anthony de Wale (1573-1639), 1636. Creator: David Bailly

Portrait of Anthony de Wale (1573-1639), 1636.
Antonius Walaeus (Anthony de Wale) hailed from Ghent.He became a minister in Koudekerke near Middelburg in 1602 and, in 1605, in Middelburg itself. Walaeus also taught theology at the Middelburg Latin School. A Counter-Remonstrant, Walaeus was Prince Maurits's court chaplain for a brief period in 1617, and in 1618-19 he attended the Synod of Dordrecht. He edited the final draft of the Canons of Dordt and later worked on the new Bible translation the synod had resolved to provide. The victory of the Counter-Remonstrants at the Synod of Dordrecht also resulted in the removal of Remonstrant professors from the theological department of Leiden University. In 1619, Walaeus was appointed to one of the vacated chairs and spent the next 20 years at the university, serving as rector magnificus between February 1625 and February 1627, and from February 1639 until his death in August of that year. Among his works is the Synopsis theologiae purioris (Synopsis of purer theology), which he co-authored with his fellow theologians at Leiden, and which formed the guidelines for the Counter-Remonstrant movement

EDITORS COMMENTS
This portrait depicts Antonius Walaeus, also known as Anthony de Wale, a prominent Dutch theologian and minister born in Ghent. Walaeus began his career as a minister in Koudekerke near Middelburg in 1602 and later taught theology at the Middelburg Latin School. He was a Counter-Remonstrant, and in 1617, he served as Prince Maurits' court chaplain. In 1618-1619, Walaeus attended the Synod of Dordrecht, where he edited the final draft of the Canons of Dordt and later worked on the new Bible translation the synod had resolved to provide. The victory of the Counter-Remonstrants at the Synod of Dordrecht led to the removal of Remonstrant professors from Leiden University, and in 1619, Walaeus was appointed to one of the vacated chairs. He spent the next 20 years at the university, serving as rector magnificus between February 1625 and February 1627 and from February 1639 until his death in August of that year. Among his many works, Walaeus co-authored the Synopsis theologiae purioris (Synopsis of purer theology) with his fellow theologians at Leiden, which served as the guidelines for the Counter-Remonstrant movement. This striking portrait, created by the renowned Dutch painter David Bailly in 1636, captures the intellectual and spiritual depth of this influential theologian and scholar.
