Dutch theologian, also known as Gansfort. He taught at Paris and later visited Italy. German Protestants regard him as a ‘Reformer before the Reformation’ since in his attitude to the Papacy, to the authority of the Church, and to the superstitious tendencies of his age, he shared many of the views of M. Luther.
