Buxtorf, John

, nephew of the second Buxtorf, was the fourth professor of Oriental languages, of that family, who occupied that post during a whole century. They have been all censured for too great an attachment to Rabbinism, to the accents and vowel-points of the Hebrew tongue. This Buxtorf died in 1732, leaving treatises on the Hebrew language, dissertations, verses, seiv mons, and a son who shewed himself worthy of his learned ancestors. 2
