<b>Jac van Belkum (1851-1933) : an "intermediary" theologian of the Dutch Reformed Church</b> <br>In this article the theological accents of Reverend Jac van Belkum (1851-1933), minister of the Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk van Afrika from 1891 until his retirement, are evaluated. By means of an comparison between central themes of the theological mainstreams in the 19th century Netherlands and Van Belkum's theological accents, the article argues that Van Belkum cannot be regarded as an adherent of the mainstream theological traditions, that is the "ethical" or the "confessional", but must be regarded as an intermediary figure.
