Roman Catholics as well as Protestants agree as to the origin of Futurism and Preterism

Catholic writer, G.S. Hitchcock, confirmed the origin of these anti-Protestant counter-theories, “The Futurist School, founded by the Jesuit Ribera in 1591, looks for Antichrist, Babylon, and a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem, at the end of the Christian Dispensation. The Praeterist School, founded by the Jesuit Alcasar in 1614, explains Revelation by the Fall of Jerusalem or by the fall of Pagan Rome in 410 A.D. (G. S. Hitchcock, The Beasts and the Little Horn 7; Quoted by Froom, Vol.2, 488)

Dean Henry Alford, in the "Prolegomena" to his Greek Testament, declares: “The founder of this system [Futurist] in modern times…appears to have been the Jesuit Ribera, about A.D. 1580." “The Praeterist view found no favour, and was hardly so much as thought of , in the times of primitive Christianity. … The View is said to have been first promulgated in anything like completeness by the Jesuit Alcasar … in 1614.” (Henry Alford, The New Testament for English Readers, vol. 2, part 2, p. 351 pp. 348, 349)

Rev. Joseph Tanner, “Accordingly, towards the close of the century of the Reformation, two of her [Rome’s] most learned doctors set themselves to the task, each endeavoring by different means to accomplish the same end, namely, that of diverting men’s minds from perceiving the fulfillment of the prophecies of the Antichrist in the Papal system. The Jesuit Alcasar devoted himself to bring into prominence the Preterist method of interpretation to show the prophecies of Antichrist were fulfilled before the Popes ever ruled at Rome, and therefore could not apply to the Papacy. On the other hand the Jesuit Ribera tried to set aside the application of the prophecies to Papal Power by bringing out the Futurist system, which asserts that these prophecies refer properly not to the career of the Papacy, but to that of some future supernatural individual, who is yet to appear, and to continue in power for three and a half years. (Rev. Joseph Tanner, Daniel and Revelation, 16-17; as quoted by Froom, Vol. 2, 487)

George Eldon Ladd (1911–1982), a Baptist minister, New Testament scholar and Professor of New Testament exegesis and theology at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. “In 1590, Ribera published a commentary on the Revelation as a counter-interpretation to the prevailing view among Protestants which identified the Papacy with the Antichrist. Ribera applied all of Revelation but the earliest chapters to the end time rather than to the history of the Church. Antichrist would be a single evil person who would be received by the Jews and would rebuild Jerusalem. (George Eldon Ladd, The Blessed Hope: A Biblical Study of the Second Advent and the Rapture (Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1956) 37-38) 

H. Grattan Guinness (1835-1910), "Through the Jesuits Ribera and Bellarmine, Rome put forth her futurist interpretation of prophecy. Ribera was a Jesuit priest of Salamanca. In 1585, he published a commentary on the Apocalypse, denying the application of the prophecies concerning antichrist to the existing Church of Rome." (H. Grattan Guinness, Romanism and the Reformation From the Standpoint of Prophecy, p. 268 (1887))

M.L. Moser, Jr. (Baptist minister), "The futuristic School, founded by the Jesuit Ribera in 1591, looks for Antichrist, Babylon, and a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem, at the end of the Christian Dispensation. The Praeterist School, founded by the Jesuit Alcazar in 1614, explains the Revelation by the fall of Jerusalem, or the fall of pagan Rome in 410 AD.." (M.L. Moser, Jr., An Apologetic of Premillenialism, p.27 (Quoting G.S. Hitchcock, a Roman Catholic Author))

Thomas Brightman, “Indeed Francis of Ribera the Jesuit, thrust his whole prophecy almost into these straits, wisely indeed to save his Pope’s head, but as touching the truth, exceedingly perversely.” (Thomas Brightman, (Puritan scholar), A Revelation of the Apocalypse, chap. 1, p8.)

Farrar, Frederic, (Anglican), 'It has been usual to say that the Spanish Jesuit Alcasar, in his Vestigatio arcani sensus in Apocalpysi (1614), was the founder of the Præterist School', (Farrar, Frederic, 'The Early Days of Christianity', volume 2 (1882))
