Waajen (or Waasen, or Waeyen), Hans Van Der (1)

a Dutch theologian, was born at Amsterdam, July 12, 1639. He began his studies at Utrecht, whence he proceeded successively to Heidelberg, Geneva, and Basle, and returned in 1662 to his native country, as doctor of divinity, to preach in Sparendam. In 1665 he was called to Leeuwarden, and in 1672 to Middelburg, but in 1677 he was forced by the intrigues of William Momma to retire from the latter place. The same year he was made professor of Hebrew in Franeker, to which office he added (in 1680) that of university preacher and state historian. He resided with the prince of Orange as councilor until his death, Nov. 4, 1701. He enjoyed the reputation of being one of the first controversialists of Holland, and wrote, Summa Theologice Christiance: Enchiridion Theologice Christiance: De Antiquitate Litterarum Judaicarum: Bilibra Veritatis et Rationes de Verbo Dei, Librae Rittangelii Obversa: De λόγῳ Dissertatio contra Clericum, etc. See Vriemoet, Series Professorum Franequeranorunm; Jdcher, Allgemeines Gelehrten Lexikon, s.v.; Fü rst, Bibl. Jud. 3, 490; Biographie Universelle, s.v. (B.P.)
