, generally known by his assumed name
Ravisius Textor, was lord of Ravisy, in the district of
Nivernois, whence he took the former of his latinized names.
He was esteemed as a scholar in his own time, which was
the commencement of the sixteenth century, and taught
polite literature in the college of Navarre, at Paris, with
considerable success. He died in 1522, and, as some say,
in great poverty. His writings were chiefly, if not entirely,
in Latin; and there are extant of them, 1. “
Epigrams,” 4. “
Epithetorum Opus,” Bas.
Expositio Nominum.” 6. An edition of the “
Opera Scriptorurn de claris Mulieribus,” Paris,
