Beaucaire, Francois De Reguillon
Beaucaire, Francois De Reguillon, a learned French prelate and theologian, was born in 1514, at the chateau of Cresta. He was at first preceptor of the Cardinal Charles of Lorraine, whom he accompanied to Rome, and who gave to him the bishopric of Metz. He also went to the Council of Trent, and there spoke with great eloquence and zeal against the pretensions of the Ultramonta.nes, and upon the necessity of the Reformation. Beaucaire retired to Bourbonnais after having resigned his bishopric, and there composed his Rerum Gallicarum Commentaria, ab anno 1541 ad annui l1562 (Lyons, 1625). He died in 1591. He also wrote De Infantium in Matrum Uteris Sanctificatione (Paris, 1565 and 1567); and some verse, which is found in Delicice Poetarum Gallorum Illustrium. His Histoire de France did not appear until after his death, as he had desired. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.; Lichtenberger, Encyclopedie des Sciences Religieuses, s.v.
