Amieline, Claude a French theologian, was born in Paris in 1635, being a son of the attorney at Chatelet. He for a time gave his attention to law, until, disgusted with the world, he entered the Brotherhood of the Oratory, April 29, 1660. In 1663 he received priest's orders, and was made chief chanter of the Church of Paris. He died in 1708. He published a work entitled Traite de la Volonte (Paris, 1684, 12mo). He also wrote a book against Quietism, entitled Trait do Amour du Souverain Bien, etc. (ibid. 1699, 12mo). Some have attributed to him L'Art de Vivre Heureux (ibid. 1690), which others have believed to belong to Louis Pascal. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.; Landon, Eccles. Dict. s.v.
