Andreas Volanus (Lithuanian: Andrius Volanas, Polish: Andrzej Wolan, 1530 in Poznań – 1610 in Vilnius) was a secretary to the Grand Duke of Lithuania and an eminent Calvinist theologian.[1][2] Volanus was involved with controversy about both Jesuits and the Ecclesia Minor or Polish Brethren.[3] Fausto Sozzini's De Jesu Christi natura (1584) is a reply to Volanus.
