Stuckius, John-William

, a celebrated writer towards the end of the sixteenth century, was born at Zurich. He acquired great honour by his works, particularly by his treatise “On the Feasts of the Ancients,” which is very curious, and may be found with his works on antiquity, Leyden, 1695, 2 vols, folio. He died in 1607. Stuckius also wrote some good Commentaries on Arrian and a parallel between Charlemagne and Henry IV. entitled “Carol us Magnus redivivus,” 4to. 1
