Johannes Althusius (1557-1638) served as syndic of the city of Emden in Friesland from 1604 until his death, as well as elder in the Emden church. In these two offices he exercised significant influence on the civil and ecclesiastical affairs of the city. Althusius' published work stands as a major contribution to the development of political and legal thought in the modern West.
