JAN POLYANDER VAN DEN KERCKHOVEN (1568-1646), Dutch Protestant divine, was born at Metz, in 1568. He became French preacher at Dort in 1591, and afterwards succeeded Franz Gomarus as professor of theology at Leiden. He was invited by the States General of Holland to revise the Dutch translation of the Bible, and it was he who edited the canons of the synod of Dort (1618–1619). His many published works include Responsio ad sophismata A. Cocheletii doctoris surbonnistae (161o), Dispute contre l'adoration des reliques des Saints trespasses (1611), Explicatio somae prophetae (1625).
