Turnbull Clan Association

TURNBULL, GEORGE (1562?–1633), Scots jesuit, was born about 1562 in the diocese of St. Andrews, and admitted to the novitiate in 1591 at the age of twenty-two. For thirty years he was professor at the college of Pont-à-Mousson, and he died at Reims on 11 May 1633. In answer to a work of Robert Baron [q. v.] on the scripture canon, he published at Reims in 1628 ‘Imaginarii Circuli Quadratura Catholica, seu de objecto formali et regula fidei, adversus Robertum Baronem ministrum.’ To this Baron replied, whereupon Turnbull published ‘In Sacræ Scholæ Calumniatorem, et calumniæ duplicatorem, pro Tetragonismo,’ Reims, 1632. Turnbull was also author of ‘Commentarii in Universam Theologiam,’ which was ready for the press when the author died.
