a German philosopher, theologian, and chemist, was born in Cologne, Sept. 14, 1486. Having been a disturber of the peace in the South of France, he fled to Paris, where his public discourses gained for him a professorship of theology at Dole. Accused of heresy and magic, he fled to England in 1510, and afterwards returned to Cologne and became secretary to Maximilian. He subsequently studied and practiced medicine, and was an ardent student of alchemy and the other occult sciences. His work De Jncertitudine et Vanitate Scienfiarum (Paris, 1531) is a satire on the state of knowledge at the period in which he lived. His death occurred at Grenoble, Feb. 18,1538.
