physician and religious controversialist. Originally a Carmelite friar in Paris, he adopted Protestantism c.1545 and then worked as a physician. In Geneva he came into conflict with J. Calvin by arguing that predestination to salvation or reprobation amounted to no more than a person's faith or lack of faith in God. He was banished from Genevan territory. In his last years he returned to the RC faith.
