Andrew Melville (1545–1622) was a Scottish Reformer and minister in the Church of Scotland. He studied at the University of St. Andrews and then at the University of Paris and Poitiers. Political troubles in France led him to Geneva where Theodor Beza was instrumental in his appointment to the chair of humanity in the Academy of Geneva. He was noted for his knowledge of Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Aramaic, and Syriac. Melville was appointed as the principal of the University of Glasgow and was responsible for significantly shaping its curriculum. He was also influential in the development of the University of Aberdeen and was later made principle of St. Mary’s College at St. Andrews—helping them gain their reputation among scholars in continental Europe.
