Dubosc, Pierre Thomines
Dubosc, Pierre Thomines a French Reformed minister, was born in 1623 at Bayeux, in Normandy, and became minister of the Protestant church at Caen, and afterwards at Rotterdam, where he died in 1692. Having, in 1688, addressed Louis XIV on the subject of an edict directed against the Protestants, the king said that "Dubosc was the finest orator of the whole kingdom." He had a grand and elevated genius, a happy imagination; a discriminating and solid judgment. His constant aim in his sermons was to enforce the inseparable connection between faith, and holiness, and final salvation. He published Sermons sur l'ptre aux Ephesiens (Rott. 1699, 3 volumes, fol.) Sermons sur divers textes (Rott. 1692-1701,4 volumes, 8vo). See Vie de Du Bosc (Rott. 1794, 8vo); Darling, Cyclop.
