The Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam was founded by Abraham Kuyper in 1880. He served as a professor of theology as well as the first academic president. The periodical offered here, the Free University Quarterly, was part of an effort to expand the influence of the university as an international center for Calvinist studies and leadership. It was in print from 1950 to 1962. "Several professors contributed regularly, especially R. Hooykaas and I. A Diepenhorst. In 1953 there were 180 and 116 nonpaying subscribers. Thus the journal was not doing very well, concluded the directors. Rector G. J. Sizoo explained why: there was no agreement about the nature of the publication. The project of launching calvinist scholarship internationally clearly no longer enjoyed the widespread support its initiators had hoped and expected it would." - Deursen, The Distinctive Character of the Free University in Amsterdam, 1880-2005. p. 216.
