VOSSIUS, Gerardus Johannes


VOSSIUS, Gerardus Johannes
(1577–1649)
   Scholar. Rector of the Latin school in 1600, Vossius was appointed curator of Staten College at the University of Leiden. He was a friend of Hugo Grotius, who became one of the leading followers of theologian Ja cobus Arminius. Because of the publication of his History of Pela gianism(1618), Vossius was dismissed on the charge of unorthodoxy. In 1622, however, he was rehabilitated and appointed professor of rhetoric and history. Vossius published many books on classical philology and literature and on history (in Latin).
   See also VOSSIUS, Isaac (1618–1689).
