Amandus Zierixensis

Amandus Zierixensis so called from his native place, Zierikzee, in the isle of Schouwen, in Zealand, was born in the 15th century, and died at Louvain in 1534. Being a good Hebrew and Greek scholar, he was regarded as an ornament of the Franciscan Order, in which he labored as priest, preacher, and later as lector of theology in his monastery at Louvain. He wrote commentaries on Genesis, Job, Ecclesiastes, etc., which he left in manuscript. Of his published works we mention Chronica ab Exordio Mundi ad Annum 1534 (Antwerpiae, apud Sim. Cocum, 1534). — Allgemeine deutsche Biographie, s.v. (B. P.)
