Verse, Noel Albert, Sieur De
Verse, Noel Albert, Sieur De a French controversialist, was born at Mans about 1650. He studied medicine at Paris, but afterwards turned his attention to theology. Having entertained doubts as to the Trinity, he abjured Roman Catholicism, on which account he was persecuted, and escaped to Holland, where he was enrolled among the citizens of Amsterdam, and began the practice of medicine; but this proving an insufficient support, he engaged in literary labors. He died in Paris in 1714. For a list of his numerous writings, which are chiefly of a doctrinal and historical and personal character, see Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Géneralé, s.v.
