Adam, Melchior

Adam, Melchior born in Silesia, obtained about 1600 the headship of a college, and finally a professorship in the University of Heidelberg. His chief works are Vitae Germanorum Philosophorum, Theologorum, etc. (Heidelberg, 1615-'20, 4 vols. 8vo), and Decades duae continentes vitas Theologorum exterorum Principum (Franc. 1618, 8vo), published together, under the title Dignarumn laude virorum immortalitas (Francf. 1653, 5 vols. 8vo, and 1706, fol.) — a great repository, from which compilers of church history and of biographical dictionaries have since drawn their materials. He died March 23,1622, at Heidelberg.
