Bellegarde, Gabriel Du Bac De
Bellegarde, Gabriel du Bac de a French theologian, was born Oct. 17, 1717. He was early made canon of Lyons, but his Port-Royalism and his severe principles shut him out from preferment and lost him his canonry. He retired to Holland, where he collected Memoires sur l'histoire de la Bulle Unigenitus dans les Pays Bas (4 vols. 12mo, 1755). He also wrote L'Histoire abregee de l'Eglise d'Utrecht (1765, 12mo); edited the works of Van Espen, with a life (Lyons, 5 vols. fol. 1778), and a complete edition of the works of Arnauld (Lausanne, 1775-82, with prefaces, notes, etc., 45 vols. in 4to). — Hoefer, Biog.
