Goslicki, Wawrzyniec

Goslicki, Wawrzyniec (Lat. Goslicius, Laurentius Grimalius), a learned Polish ecclesiastic, was born about 1533, and educated at Cracow and Padua. He took orders in the Roman Catholic Church, and was successively appointed bishop of Kaminietz and Posen. He was active in public affairs, and was frequently engaged in political matters. Through his influence the Jesuits were prevented from establishing their schools at Cracow. He was also a strenuous advocate of religious toleration in Poland. He died October 31, 1607. His principal work is De Optimo Senatore, etc. (Venice, 1568), of which there are two English translations, A Commonwealth of Good Counsaile, etc. (1607), and The Accomplished Senator, done into English by Mr. Oldsworth (1733).
