Meyere, Lievin De
Meyere, Lievin De a Belgian Jesuit, was born at Gand in 1655. In 1700 he became a member of the Society of Jesus. He subsequently taught philology, philosophy, and theology, and was made rector of a college at Louvain. He bitterly opposed the tenets of the Jansenists. His numerous writings, nearly all poetical, are replete with animadversions against them. Meyere died at Louvain in 1730. The following work, said to have been written by Theod. Eleutherius, was edited by Meyere: Historia Controversiarum de divinae gratiae auxiliis sub pontif. Sixto V, Clemente VIII, et Paulo V, lib. 6 (Antwerp, 1705, fol.). See Moreri, Grand Dict.
