Jan Nicolaesz Utenhove, a Reformed clergyman, originally from Ghent, Belgium, who lived in England for some time and from 1554 at Emden in East Friesland, Germany. In 1556 he moved to Poland to assist John à Lasco in promoting the Reformation in the country. He made a new Dutch translation of the New Testament, published at Emden in 1556, reprinted in 1559. Utenhove's hope that this translation would be generally accepted by the Dutch Protestants was not fulfilled; the Calvinists objected to the dialect used by Utenhove, and the Mennonites held to Mattheus Jacobszoon's New Testament and the Liesveldt editions, and from 1560 to the Biestkens Bibles.
