By Alexander Ross.

Alexander Ross was an important Scottish polemicist and writer, remembered for his various writings in which he attacked leading figures such as Hobbes, Harvey and Browne. He also published a series of works on astronomy and religion, in which he defined aspects of world theological beliefs. The goal of Religions of the World was proving that these religions practiced heresy and worship of idols. It provided a context to define the profiles of figures such as John Huss, Michael Servetus and Mahomet.
