Bellegarde, Jean Baptiste Morvan De
Bellegarde, Jean Baptiste Morvan de a laborious French writer, known as the Abbe de Bellegarde, was born at Pihyriac, August 30th, 1648. He was a Jesuit 16 years, but was obliged to leave the society on account of his Cartesianism. He translated the Letters and Sermons of Basil, the Sermons of Asterius, the Moralia of Ambrose, many of the works of Leo, Gregory Nazianzen, and Chrysostom, the Imitatio Christi and other works of Thomas a Kempis, and various other writings. His translations betray great negligence. He died April 26, 1734. — Hoefer, Biog. Generale, 5, 39.
