Gilles-François-de Beauvais



Jesuit writer and preacher, born at Mans, France, 7 July, 1693; died probably at Paris about 1773. He entered the Society of Jesus 16 August, 1709, and taught belles-lettres, rhetoric, and philosophy. After ordination he was assigned to preach and give the Advent course at Court in 1744, during which year he published his "Life of Ven, Ignatius Azevedo, S.J." and in 1746 that of Ven. John de Britto, S.J., the latter of which has been translated into English by Father Faber of the Oratory (Richardson, London, 1851). He wrote a number of other works of devotion and for spiritual reading.

Sommervogel, Bibl. de la c. de J., IX, 1080-82.
