Antony van der Os, b. 1722 at [[Zierikzee (Zeeland, Netherlands)|Zierikzee]], d. 12 April 1807, at Zwolle, was a clergyman in the Reformed churches of 's Gravenland in 1746, and Zwolle in 1748, where he soon came into difficulties because he questioned the Reformed doctrine of predestination and in general wanted to accept only the Holy Scriptures and not also the doctrines of the Dordrecht Synod.

Antony van der Os, b. 1722 at Zierikzee, d. 12 April 1807, at Zwolle, was a clergyman in the Reformed churches of 's Gravenland in 1746, and Zwolle in 1748, where he soon came into difficulties because he questioned the Reformed doctrine of predestination and in general wanted to accept only the Holy Scriptures and not also the doctrines of the Dordrecht Synod. When he refused to refute Remonstrant views he was suspended on 21 December 1750. Unrest overtook the whole congregation in Zwolle so that the government had to intervene. The passion with which van der Os carried on this matter caused much offense. In 1755 he was deposed from his office. In 1758 he received a call to the Mennonite congregation of Beverwijk in North Holland, was baptized by Cornelis Loosjes, the minister of the Zaandam Oostzijde congregation, and became its minister. He served Beverwijk until 1764 and then Zaandam-Oost. He was the cause of much disturbance in the Mennonite brotherhood. More than thirty polemics appeared, mostly anonymous, for and against van der Os.
