Casaubon, Méric a Swiss Calvinistic theologian and critic, son of Isaac Casaubon, was born at Geneva, Aug. 14, 1599. He commenced his studies at the Protestant academy of Sedan, then went with his father to England, where he became distinguished, under the protectorate of Cromwell, by his attachment to the Stuarts. He died July 14, 1671, while rector of Bledon, in the county of Somerset, prebendary of Canterbury, and rector of Ickham. Like his father, he pursued a literary career, and was also one of the most distinguished critics of his time. He wrote besides, some very scholarly works upon other subjects: Pietas contra Maledicos Patrii Nominis et Religionis Hostes (Lond. 1651): — Vindicatio Patris Adversus Impostorses (1624).
