Alviset, Benoit a learned French Benedictine, was born at the commencement of the 17th century, at Besancon. During the wars which then desolated the Franche- Comte he returned to Italy and entered the brotherhood at Monte-Casino, under the name Virginius. He wrote a treatise upon the privileges of the monks, entitled Murenulce Sacrce Vestis Sponsce Regis AEterni Vermiculatce; Opus de Privilegiis Ordinumc Regularium (Venetiis, 1661). This work was put in the Index by the court of Rome, and reprinted at Kempten in 1673. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
