Fromond

Fromond

(Fromondus), a theologian of Liege, was born at Haccourt in 1587. He taught philosophy and theology at Louvain, and was, in 1633, appointed dean of the chapter of St. Peter, in that city. He appears to have possessed some scientific knowledge, besides a pretty extensive acquaintance with theology and philology. Des Cartes was one of his friends. Fromond, however; defended Ptolemy's system (of the immobility of the earth and the motion of the sun) against Philippe Laensberg. He was an intimate friend of Jansenius and was one of the two theologians to whom the latter confided, when dying, his renowned Augustinus. He died at Louvain in 1653. The best work of Fromond is a Commentaire des Actes des Apostles (Paris, 1670, 2 volumes, fol.). He wrote also Anti-Aristarchus, sive de orbe Terra immobili, adversus Philippum Lansbergium (Antw. 1631, 4to): — Vesta, sive Anti-Aristarchi vindex, contra Jacobum Lansbergium et Copernicanos (Antw. 1633, 4to): — Brevis Anatomia Hominus (Louvain, 1641, 4to). — Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Gener. 18:918.
