Aymon, John

Aymon, John a French writer, lived at the close of the 17th and the beginning of the 18th century. He was at first a Catholic priest, then left the Roman Catholic Church at Geneva, and married at the Hague. He again returned to the Church of Rome, and in 1706 was put by the Cardinal de Noailles in the Seminary of Foreign Missions. In 1707 he fled to Holland with a manuscript (the original of the Acts of the Council held at Jerusalem in 1672 and 1673), and had it printed at the Hague under the title Monuments Authentiques de l'Eglise Grecque (1708, 4to), reproduced under the title Lettres et Anecdotes de Cyril Lucar (Amsterdam, 1708). Aymon was judicially pursued by Clement, the librarian of the French king, and in 1709 the States-General ordered the restoration of the manuscript. Aymon wrote also Actes Ecclesiastiques et civils de tous les Synodes Nationanx des Eglises Reformees de la France (Rotterdam, 1710, 4to), and several works on the Roman Catholic Church. — Hoefer, Biographie Generale, 3, 900.
