Radewin, Florentinus

Resource Toolbox

a Roman Catholic of note, was born at Leyerdam, in Holland, about 1350, studied at Prasgue, and was for some time canon at Utrecht. He became associated with Gerard de Groot, and was one of the founders of the Brethren of the Common Life, and after De Groot's death (1384) was placed at the head of the brotherhood. He died about 1400. He was also the founder of the convent of the regular canons at Windesheim, near Zwolle, and of the frater-house at Deventer; he thus became, so to speak, the second founder of the Brethren of the Conmmon Life. His Life was written by Thomas a Kempis. See Ullmann, Reformers before the Reformation, ii, 81 sq.; Gieseler, Kirchengesch. ii, 3, 226 sq. (J. H. W.)
