Handelinghe der Doopsgesinde, ghenaemt de Vereenigde Vlaamsche en Duytsche Gemeynte, ge-houden tot Haerlem anno 1649 met de dry confessien aldaer geapprobeert. Of the acts of this Dutch Flemish conference there are three editions: no place of publication indicated 1649, Amsterdam 1664, and Vlissingen 1666. The edition of 1666, published by Geleyn Jansz, is of great importance for Dutch Mennonite history, because in the same volume are inserted a number of other documents. The 1664 edition only contains the acts of the meeting. The 1666 edition contains (1) Voorrede signed by the delegates of a number of congregations in Zeeland: Vlissingen, Middelburg, Veere, Zierikzee, and Brouwershaven; (2) the resolutions of the Haarlem meeting; (3) the Olyf-Tacxken confession; this edition is more complete than that of Algemeene Belydenissen of 1665, because it also contains the second and third question and the Brief tot Vreed-Bereydinge and Presentatie, which are not found in the Algemeene Belydenissen; (4) Vrede-handelinge at Amsterdam 1630, and confession of Jan Centzen; (5) Copye ende Seecker Antwoordt van de Switser broeders ofte Hooghduytschen . . . over gegeven aan de Poolsche betreffende . . . de Mensch-wordinghe ende der Godtheydt Jesu Christi, an account drawn up in 1592 at Strasbourg by a meeting of Mennonite leaders; (6) Copye Emanuel, an account of the United High-German and Frisian Mennonites of Hoorn, Holland, 1630; (7) Confession of Adriaen Cornelis (Dordrecht Confession) of 1632.

To the volume are added the Concept of Cologne of 1591, with an introduction, which is not found in the Algemeene Belydenissen, the Confession of Jacques Outerman of 1626 with introduction, and Eenighe Aenteykeningen uyt de Aenporringhe.
