The aim of this chapter is to flesh out our knowledge of some aspects of Arias Montano’s sojourn in the Netherlands on the basis of primary documents, above all previously unpublished private correspondence. I will pay special attention to his role in the Flemish conflict, his participation in the controversies over Biblical Scholarship, and his relationships with the leading political, ecclesiastical, intellectual and economic circles of his age.
