Pointz, Robert an English theologian of some repute, flourished near the middle of the 16th century. He was educated at Oxford University, and was made perpetual fellow of New College in 1554. He was obliged to go abroad after the accession of queen Mary, he having embraced the Reformed doctrines, and preferring exile to abnegation of his religious convictions. He went to Louvain, and settled there as pastor of a Protestant congregation. He wrote several controversial works against the Romanists, examining their different characteristic doctrines. Among these are, Testimonies for the Real Presence (Lond. 1566, 16mo): — Miracles performed by the Eucharist (1570). See Wood, Athenae Oxonienses, 3, 715.
