Emmanuel Schelstrate (1649-1692) was a Catholic theologian born at Antwerp in 1649. He was called to Rome by Pope Innocent IX and made an assistant librarian of the Vatican Library. He carried on controversies with Arnauld and Louis Maimbourg concerning the authority of the general councils and of the popes; he opposed the declaration of the Gallican clergy in 1682, and wrote a treatise on the origin of the Anglican Church in a controversy with Edward Stillingfleet, Dean of St. Paul's, London. - The Catholic Encyclopaedia.
