Belhomme Humbert a learned French Benedictine of the Congregation of St.Vanne and St. Hidulphus, was born at Bar-le-Duc, Dec. 27 , 1653. He was distinguished for his eloquence, being the first who preached in the Cathedral of Strasburg after its cession to France. In 1703 he was made abbot of Moven-Moutier, and during his long superintendence of its affairs he rebuilt its structures, and collected the valuable library which was formerly there. He died Dec. 12, 1727. He wrote, Historia Mediani Monasterii (Strasburg, 1724, 4to): — also a Fragment of the Chronicle of Jean de Bayon; and some other historical pieces: — besides Remarks on some Decisions of the Rota concerning the Abbeys of St. Mihiel and Senones; published under the name of Dominique Doyen (Naples, 1700): — a small work concerning the Power of the Reformed Benedictines to Possess the Pespetual Benefices of their Order (without his name).
