Mather, Increase.
Increase Mather was a rabidly anti-Catholic Puritan responsible for burning witches in Massachusetts.
American Puritan Increase Mather's 1687 A Testimony.. ch 3 section 4 claims "Incarnation of Christ, was in the seventh month." The argument he makes is against a Dec 25th Christmas. By "incarnation" Increase Mather seems to mean "birth" rather than "conception."

Sanas Cormaic (or "Cormac's Glossary"). The basis for the modern text is the An Leabar Breac manuscript dating from the 15th century.  A translation can be found in Whitley Stokes 1868 version of John O'Donovan's translation on page 19:

Royal Irish Academy Ms 23 P 16 (Leabhar Breac), cat. no. 1230
