Fullenius Bernardus

Fullenius Bernardus, was born in 1602. He pursued his collegiate course at the University of Franeker. He devoted himself specially to the study of the Hebrew and mathematics. His proficiency in both studies was great. When only twenty- seven he was appointed to fill the chair made vacant by the death of the distinguished Orientalist, Sixtinus Amamas. He accepted the appointment, and in 1630 he entered upon the discharge of its duties. For seven years he filled the office with fidelity and acceptance. The professorship of mathematics was then tendered to him, and the celebrated Cocceius appointed him his successor in the department of Oriental literature. He was one of the committee appointed by the Synod of Dort to revise the new translation of the New Testament. An edition of J. Drusii Commentaris ad librum Coheleth Salomonis et Jobi was brought out under his editorial supervision, and with prefaces prepared by him. See Glasius, Godgeleerd Nederland, i Deel, biz. 479; G. Brandt, Historie der Reformatie, etc., 3 Deel, labz. 53 (Rotterdam, 1704). (J.P.W.)
