Born at Saintes, 1609; died in Paris, 7 October, 1678. He was ordained in 1631, was a Doctor of the Sorbonne, and member of the French Oratory. His French translation of the New Testament (4 vols. 1666-170) was highly valued and ofter reprinted. His other Scriptural works are mostly extracts from his New Testament edition. As a strenuous opponent of the Jansenists, he wrote "Defensio Constitutionum Innocentii XI et Alexandri VII".
