Corvinus (or Corsinus, Properly Rabe), Johannes Arnoldus
Corvinus (or Corsinus, properly Rabe), Johannes Arnoldus a Dutch jurist and theologian, devoted himself to preaching in 1606, and embraced the doctrine of the Remonstrants, for which he was deprived of his office as preacher, and, in 1622, obliged to seek an asylum in Schleswig. In 1623 he went to France, sojourned at Paris, Rouen, and Orleans, and was made doctor of law. In 1625 he returned to Amsterdam, and became professor of canon law. He is often confounded with his son, Corvinus of Beldern, who embraced Catholicism. The subject of this sketch died in 1650, leaving Defensio Sententice Jac.
