Hoen, Cornelisz Hendricxz

(Cornelius; Hoon; Honius; Honnius; d. 1524). Dutch theol.; b. probably Gouda, near Rotterdam. On basis of a treatise by J. Wessel* he developed theory that in the words of institution of the Lord's Supper “is” means “signifies”; this view found favor with H. Zwingli* and his followers (see also Grace, Means of, IV 3).
