Allut, Jean

Allut, Jean surnamed l'Eclaireur (the Enlightener), a pseudonym adopted by a French fanatic, who, at the beginning of the 18th century, attempted at London the establishment of a new sect. His real name was Elie Marion, and he was a native of Barre, a village in the vicinity of Montpelier. His apostles or associates were Nicolas Fatio, Jean Dande, and Charles Portales. His works, which are now very rare, are as follows:

1. Discernement des tenebres d'avec la lumiere, afin D'exciter les hommes a chercher la lumiere (Lond. 1710, 8vo): —

2. Eclair de lumiere descendent des cieux, et du relevement de la chute de l'homme par son peche (without name of place, 1711, 8vo): —

3. Plan de la justice de Dieu sur la terre dans ces derniers jours (1714, 8vo):—

4. Quand vous aurez saccage, vous serez saccage (1714, 8vo); the latter work consists of letters signed Allut, Marion, Fatio, and Portales: —

5. Avertissement Prophetique d' Elie Marion (Lond. 1707, 8vo):

6. Cri d'alarme, ou avertissement aux nations qu'ils sortent de Babylone (1712, 8vo). — Hoefer, Biographie Generale, 2, 169.
