Beaupere, Jean (in Latin Johannes Pulchripatriis), a French theologian, was born at Nevers in 1380. At the commencement of the 15th century he completed his studies at the University of Paris, and devoted himself to ecclesiastical labors and honors. He was successively master of arts, doctor and professor of theology, rector of the university (1413), canon of Paris, Besanmon, Rouen, chancellor of Notre Dame of Paris, and deputy of the university for the nation of Normandy at the council of Bale. He took part in the process of condemnation of the Maid of Orleans' in 1430, where he distinguished himself by his want of truth and his iniquity. In the process of re-examination in 1450, he excused himself'for his conduct by the violence exercised by the English concerning the judges who condemned that heroine. He died about 1450. — See Hoeer, Nouv. Biog. Gen., s.v.
