Brevint, Daniel, Dd
Brevint, Daniel, D.D., was born at Jersey in 1616, and studied first at Saumur, and afterward at Oxford, where he became a fellow of Jesus College 1638. Being ejected for refusing the Covenant, he went to France, and was employed in the negotiations for conciliating the members of the Church of Rome and Protestants. After the Restoration, he became prebendary of Durham 1661, and dean of Lincoln 1681. He died in 1695. Brevint was a learned divine, especially in the Romish controversy. He wrote Missale Romanorum, or the Depth and Misery of the Roman Mass laid open (Oxford, 1672, 8vo):- The Christian Sacrament and Sacrifice (1672); both these are reprinted under the title Brevint on the Mass (Oxford, 1838, 8vo):-Ecclesice Prim. Sacramentum et Sacrificium a poonficiis corruptelis, etc.... liberum. Waterland (Works, 8:167) speaks in the highest terms of Brevint.
