|a Jean Maximilien (died 1697) was a French Protestant refugee and philosopher who settled in Holland after the expulsion of the Hugenots from France. Lucas was a friend of Spinoza and wrote the first biography of him, which was not published until after the author's death. The anti-religious text Les trois imposteurs has been attributed to him.

|a Manuscript copy, in a single professional italic hand, unidentified, of this attack on Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The text is presented as a translation of a Latin work, De tribus imposteribus (The Three Imposters), otherwise unknown and presumed non-existent. The author argues that the founders of all three religions lacked credibility and authority, established their religions from purely political motives, and owed their success to the fear they instilled in their followers. The author proceeds to argue that Nature is the only divine principle that can be seen to operate in the universe.
