Fromage Pierre

Fromage Pierre, a French Jesuit missionary and Orientalist, was born at Laon May 12, 1678, and died in Syria December 10 or 23, 1740. He went on his mission- work first to Egypt, where he remained some years, and then to Syria, where he passed the remainder of his life, mostly at Aleppo. He became superior of his order, and, in despite of great difficulties, established at the monastery of St. John the Baptist, near Antura, a printing-press, and published, mostly is the Arabic language, a great number of translations and incitations of religious and theological works. Fromage was present and made an opening discourse at the great synod of the Alaronites, held October 15, 1736, near Tripoli, in Syria. — Hoefer, Nouv. Biog.
