This paper reviews the influence of Reformed traditions on the doctrine of human rights. By surveying the historical work done by quite a few able and respectable scholars (religious and non-religious), a serious case for this claim can be made. If religious sources of human rights cannot be discounted completely, then the dialogue between religious thought and human rights should not be unidirectional. In the final sections of this paper, reflections will be made on how the dialogue between Christian thought and human rights may be conducted.
