Bolsec, Jerome Hermes
Bolsec, Jerome Hermes, a French Carmelite of the 16th century, who appears to have embraced the reformed opinions, and fled from Paris to Ferrara, where he was almoner to the duchess. From thence he went to Lyons and Geneva, avowed himself a Protestant, and began to practise as a physician. In 1551 he declaimed against predestination in a public assembly. Bolsec was imprisoned, convicted of sedition and Pelagianism, and banished (Dec. 23,1551). He returned to France and again embraced Romanism. In 1577 he published Histoire de la Vie, Maeurs, etc., de Jenin Calvin, a violently abusive book, which he followed with a slanderous Life of Beza in 1582. He died about 1585.-Mosheim, Ch.
