The Academy of Saumur was a Huguenot university at Saumur in western France. It existed from 1593, when it was founded by Philippe de Mornay,[1] until shortly after 1683, when Louis XIV decided on the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, ending the limited toleration of Protestantism in France.

Amyraldism[edit]

Main article: Amyraldism

The Academy was the home of Amyraldism, an important strand of Protestant thought of the seventeenth century. Also called Salmurianism or hypothetical universalism, it was a movement remaining within Calvinism.

The Helvetic Consensus and Westminster Confession were concerned to combat the tendency Amyraldism represented. [3]
