Lectures on Calvinism 11

jpegIn his Lectures on Calvinism, Abraham Kuyper observes how, before Calvinism, the Dutch art did not take into account the common people, but “they only were considered worthy of notice who were superior to the common man, viz., the high world of Church and of the priests, of knights and princes.”  After Calvinism, however, “by the light of common grace it was seen that the non-churchly life was also possessed of high importance and of an all-sided art-motive.”  The “common life of man came out of its hiding-place like a new world,” signaling the “emancipation of our ordinary earthly life.”
