Benedictine scholar. A Belgian by birth, from 1914 he lived in London. He was a prolific writer, especially concerned with the history of Latin Christianity; much of his work is inaccurate. The latter part of the Dictionnaire d'archéologie chrétienne et de liturgie (ed. by F. Cabrol and himself, 1903–53) was almost entirely Leclercq's work.

Subjects: Christianity.
