David Kromhout describes the changes in the discourse of the 17th-century Leiden humanist circle as a result of the growing influence of orthodox Calvinists. He analyses the coup d'etat by Maurice of Orange in 1618 in terms of a Foucauldian event resulting from the clash between the discourses of the two groups mentioned above.
