The Herman Bavinck Center for Reformed and Evangelical Theology, founded in November 2015, seeks to study and advance the tradition of Reformed theology that inspired the founders of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and that still inspires millions of people all over the world today. This tradition of doing theology, going back to the Swiss Reformation of the 16th century, is not avertive but world-transformative, in that it is has open eyes to society at large and is committed to the common good. Abraham Kuyper and Herman Bavinck serve as excellent examples of this ethos, but many leading theologians from the contemporary Reformed and evangelical world might be mentioned as well. The Center mainly promotes constructive theology with a strong historical anchoring, but it also fosters work in biblical, historical,  philosophical, and practical theology with a focus on or from within the Reformed tradition.
