Maturin Veyssière de la Croze


From A HISTORY OF UNITARIANISM, SOCINIANISM etc., 1945 by Earl Morse Wilbur

" His intimate friend and correspondent for many years, Professor Mathurin Veyssière la Croze at the French college in Berlin, who grieved only that Crellius was not properly sound in saving faith, wrote Mosheim of him that, heresy apart, he was the best and most lovable man in the world.27

From NEWTON AND SOCINIANISM, 2003 by Stephen David Snobelen

Nor was the July 1726 meeting the only personal encounter between the two..,   for [Samuel] Crell later related in a letter to his correspondent Mathurin Veyssière de la Croze that while in England, he had "spoken at different times" with Newton. Also critical is the context in which Crell introduces Newton in his letter: after his listing of several English Unitarians, including William Whiston, James Peirce and Daniel Whitby, Crell provides several details that derive from his visits with Newton, including the latter's personal claim to him that he had written a commentary on the Apocalypse. He notes further that Newton "was very well versed not only in mathematics and natural philosophy, but also in theology and ecclesiastical history". De la Croze was also told that Newton had "wished to read my book, and did read it, while it was going through the press, because it seemed to contain new things".    (etc)
