Alemand, Louis Augustin
Alemand, Louis Augustin, a French writer of considerable note, was born at Grenoble in 1653, of Protestant parents, whose religion he abjured. He was admitted M.D. at Aix; and, having failed in his profession, went to Paris. He did at his native place in 1728; and left, among other works, Histoire Monastique d'Irlande (Paris, 1690,1 2mo).
