Nolin, Denis

Nolin, Denis an erudite Frenchman, who was much devoted to the study of exegetical theology, was born at Paris in 1648. A lawyer in the Parliament of Paris, he early left the bar, and turned his studies towards the Holy Scriptures. He had formed a rich collection of editions, translations, and commentaries of the Bible; the catalogue was printed, and he bequeathed it after his death to the poor of his parish. He died at Paris April 10, 1710. Under the anagram of N. Inides (Denis N.), a theologian of Salamanca, he published Lettre ou l'on propose la maniere de corriger la version Graeque des Septante, avec des eclaircissententsur quelques dificultes (Paris, 1708, 8vo). This article occasioned some Reflexions, by PP. de Tournemine and Souiciet, in the Journal de Trevoux (June, 1709), to which Nolin replied by Observations (same journal, Jan. 1710):Deux Dissertations, l'une sur' les Bibles Frangaises, et l'autre sur l'eclaircissement de la Dissertation anonyme de l'abbe de Longueme et des Lettres choisies de Simon touchant les antiquites des Chaldaens et les Egyptians (Par. 1710, 8vo). In the first he has done little more than abridge the Histoire des traductions Frangaises de l'Ecriture of Lallouette, and in the second he examines a question of plagiarism: — Lettres sur la nouvelle edition des Septante, par J. — Ern. Grabe, in the Jour. des Sav. (Supplement, Dec. 1710). See Moreri, Grand Dict. Hist. s.v.
