Historical background and development of the formula which must be signed by candidate ministers in the Reformed tradition. The origin and the development of the tradition in the Reformed churches of binding all candidates for the ministry to the confession of faith as it is expressed in both the ecumenical and reformed confessions, by expecting them to sign a specific formula, and how this tradition was kept up in the Nederduitsch Hervormde Church, is researched.
