Andrew Melville

Book cover
Andrew Melville (1545-1622) was a Scottish scholar, theologian and religious reformer. He was born at Baldovy near Montrose, Angus, the youngest son of Richard Melville. At an early age Melville began to show a taste for learning, and his brother did everything in his power to give him the best education. He learned the rudiments of Latin at the grammar school of Montrose. In 1564 he set out for France to complete his education at the University of Paris. He applied himself to Oriental languages, but also attended the last course of lectures delivered by Adrianus Turnebus, professor of Greek. From Paris he went to Poitiers (1566) to study civil law, and though only twenty-one was apparently at once made a regent in the college of St Marceon. Melville created a fashion for the study of Greek literature. He was Moderator of the General Assembly in 1582, and took part in the organization of the Church and the Presbyterian method. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
