He was a nephew of John Duvergier de Hauranne, a famous abbot of St. Cyran, and his master was Jansenius, bishop of Ypres, then professor of theology at Louvtain. He had charge of the education of the son of Arnauld of Andilly, and in 1644 succeeded his uncle in the Abbey of St. Cyran, where he introduced certain reforms. His intimacy with Dr. Anthony Arnauld caused him to play an important part in the disputes concerning Jansenism. He died Aug. 22, 1678.
