(Christianus Crucius Adrichomius).

Catholic priest and theological writer, b. at Delft, 13 February, 1533; d. at Cologne, 20 June, 1585. He was ordained in 1566, and was Director of the Convent of St. Barbara in Delft till expelled by the storm of the Reformation. His works are: Vita Jesu Christi (Antwerp, 1578); Theatrum Terrae Sanctae et Biblicarum Historiarum (Cologne, 1590).
