Christophorus, Angelus

Christophorus, Angelus a Greek writer, was born in the Peloponnesus about 1575. On account of the atrocities of the Turkish government he went to Europe, and settled in England, studying at Cambridge and Oxford. In 1619 he published in Greek, with a Latin translation, a work On the Present State of the Greek Church, which was republished by the Protestant George Phelavius in 1655, at Frankfort, with a new Latin translation and notes; again reprinted in Greek and Latin (Leipsic, 1876). Christophorus also wrote, De suis Tribulationibus: — Expilicatio Symboli: — Explanatio Sacrorum- Mysteriorum: — De Apostasia Eccesiae et Homine Peccatore (Greek and Latin; Lond. 1614).
