Bectoz, Claudine De
Bectoz, Claudine De called "the Scholastic Sister," was a learned French nun, born about 1480, in the vicinity of Grenoble. She entered very young the abbey of St. Honorat, in Provence, of which she became abbess, and where she died in 1547. She was celebrated for her profound erudition and skill in Latin composition, evinced in the letters which she wrote; none of which, however, have reached our time. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog.
