    Born At Sauves, 19 March, 1684; died At Paris, 5 May, 1766. He was the son of a converted Protestant (Protestantism) minister. After he had taught medicine at Montpellier, he became a member of the Medical Faculty at Paris. His medical writings, however numerous, are now forgotten, but a work published by him anonymously has secured for him a permanent reputation. This book was entitled: "Conjectures sure les memories originauz dont il paroit que Moyse s'est servi pour composer le livre de la Génèse. Avec des remarques qui appuient ou qui éclairscissent ses conjectures" (Brussels). Astruc himself did not inted to deny the Mosaic authorship of Geniesis; but his work created an era in Biblical inquiry, occasioning the modern critical theories.
