Gesselius Timan, Md

Gesselius Timan, M.D., was born at Amersfoort near the close of the 16th century. His father, Cornelius Gesselius, was rector of the Latin school of that place, but lost his situation in consequence of refusing to subscribe the canons of the Synod of Dort. His son Timan, associate rector, holding his father's sentiments, shared the same fate. Being a doctor of medicine, he established himself first at Nymegan, and subsequently at Utrecht as a practining physician. He deserves mention here chiefly on account of his labors in Church history. His principal works are, Historia sacra et ecclesiastica ordine chronologica et via compendiara digesta (Traj. 1659, 4 volumes): — Historia rerum memorabilium in orbes gestarum ab anno mundi usque ad annum Christi 1625 (Traj. 1661).
