François Langenes (fl.1672–82) was a baker from The Hague who had worked (1672) in the service of William III. Langenes was accused by the Kerkenraad of The Hague of having openly spread spinozist tenets (14 November 1681) and ‘strange and unhealthy opinions’ (16 March 1682). Nothing is further heard of his provoking behaviour after June 1682 (cf. Wielema, 2004, pp. 94–5). It would seem that Langenes was influenced by Spinoza. It is however uncertain if he belonged to the ‘circle’ of friends and acquaintances around Spinoza in The Hague.
