Franciscus Junius (1545-1602)

Franciscus Junius the Elder (born François du Jon, 1 May 1545 – 13 October 1602) was a Reformed scholar, Protestant reformer and theologian. Born in Bourges in central France, he initially studied law, but later decided to study theology in Geneva under John Calvin and Theodore Beza. He became a minister in Antwerp, but was forced to flee to Heidelberg in 1567. He wrote a translation of the Bible into Latin with Emmanuel Tremellius, and his Treatise on True Theology (De Vera Theologia) was an often used text in Reformed scholasticism.
