Steen. No. 59 / N. 43.' Hardbound. Good. Martin Becan (Verbreck / van der Breck) [1563-1624] was born at Hilvarenbeck, Brabant, Holland. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1583, and taught theology for twenty-two years at Wuerzburg, Mainz, and Vienna, where he was confessor to Emperor Ferdinand II from 1620 until his death. He possessed a style clear and dignified, and noticeably free from the bitterness which marked the polemical literature of the day. His writings were directed principally against Calvin, Luther, and the Anabaptists. Best known as a Controversialist and anti-Protestant author, here he turns to Bible criticism, interpretation, etc. Especially the relationship of the Old Testament beliefs and practices of the Jews to those of the New Testament.
