Danseus, or Daneau Lambert
Danseus, Or Daneau Lambert, an eminent French Protestant divine, was born at Orleans, 1530. He first studied law, afterwards theology, and became minister at Geneva, and subsequently at Leyden; finally at Orthez, in Navarre, where he died in 1595. He was the first writer who treated Christian ethics separately from theology (Ethices Christiance lib. 3, Genev. 1577). He was a strong Calvinist, as shown in his Loci Communes. He edited portions of Augustine, and wrote largely in controversy. We have in English his Commentary on the Minor Prophets, translated by Stockwood (Lond. 1594, 4to). See Haag, La France Protestante, 4:192; Theol. Stud. u. Krit. 1850, p. 22.
