Quick Reference


French RC historian. He associated himself with the movement sponsored by F. R. de Lamenais and H.-D. Lacordaire, but when Gregory XVI condemned liberalism in 1832, he submitted and ceased to propagate his views for some time. His historical works were polished in style, but uncritical. The best-known is his Moines d'occident (1860–7; Eng. tr., 1896).

Subjects: Christianity.
