    More Information:

    Daneau, Lambert, 1530-1595, He studied law at Orleans, went to Paris in 1547, and returned to Orleans to study with Anne de Bourg. He obtained a doctorate of law in 1559. Born to a Catholic family, he was inclined to Protestantism and went to Geneva where he met Calvin. In 1561 he became pastor of Gien, where he remained until St. Bartholomew's day. From 1574 he was a professor at Geneva and was granted citizenship there in 1581. He taught in Leiden, Ghent, Lescar, and Castres. "Daneau was one of the most celebrated theologians of the sixteenth century; he belonged to the extreme Calvinist party, and wrote many works on philosophy, jurisprudence, and theology." [Schaff-Herzog] Daneau was a firm believer in witchcraft and stressed the 'devil's mark' in identifying witches and in the heresy involved in the pact the witch formed with the devil.

    This treatise on the nature of heresy was first printed in 1573 and is a scholarly exercise in logical form with numerous citations (some in Greek) of relevant source material. Index Aurel. 149.520. Adams D38. Moeckli 97.
