Hentenius [Johannes, Jan, Jean, etc.; John Henton or Henten.] (born 1499 at
Nalinnes, now in Belgium; died 10 October 1566, at Leuven) was a Flemish Dominican Biblical exegete.
When quite young he took the vows of religion in the
Hieronymite Orderin Spain, but left it about 1548 to enter the Dominican Order at Leuven (French: "Louvain"), where he had gained a name at the university for scholarship. In 1550 he began to teach in the Dominican convent of that city, in which he became regent of studies three years later. He was made defender of the Faithand inquisitor in 1556.
While prior of the Leuven convent he was chosen by the theological faculty of the university to take the place of
John Hessel, Regius Professor of Sentences, who had been sent by the king to the Council of Trent, and was teaching at the university in 1565. Quétifand Echard(Script. Ord. Præd., II, 195-6) say that he was praised by the writers of his century, especially by William Seguierin "Laur. Beig.", pt. I, 5 Dec., no. I, p. 57.
His principal writings are:
*"Biblia Latina ad vetustissima exemplaria castigata" (Louvain, 1547, and many times elsewhere);
*"Commentaria in quatuor Evangelia", consisting of commentaries by
John Chrysostomand other early writers collected by Euthymius Zigabenusand interpreted by Hentenius (Louvain, 1544);
*"Enarrationes in Acta Apost. et in Apocalypsin" (Louvain, 1845, and repeatedly elsewhere);
*the same work, together with commentaries on the Epistles, as "Œcumenii commentaria in Acta Apost. etc." (Paris, 1631).
