THOMAS ERASTUS (1524-1583), German-Swiss theologian, whose surname was Luber, Lieber, or Liebler, was born of poor parents on the 7th of September 1524, probably at Baden, canton of Aargau, Switzerland.
One of the first acts of the new church system was to excommunicate Erastus on a charge of Socinianism, founded on his correspondence with Transylvania.
The ban was not removed till 1575, Erastus declaring his firm adhesion to the doctrine of the Trinity.
It consists of seventy-five Theses, followed by a Confarmatio in six books, and an appendix of letters to Erastus by Bullinger and Gualther, showing that his Theses, written in 1568, had been circulated in manuscript.
