Berauld (Or Berault), Michel a French Protestant theologian, was born about 1535, at Mans. About the year 1555 he left the convent of the Dominicans of his native place, and joined the Reformed Church. In 1560 he was received into the evangelical ministry, and ministered to the Church at Ladeve from 1561 to 1562, and at Beziers from 1563 to 1564. Being driven away from the latter place, he went to Montauban. In 1573 he was at Puylaurens, and in 1576 again at Beziers. Being obliged to leave this place a second time, he became pastor at Realmont. In 1579 he was appointed pastor and professor of theology at Montauban, where he died, July 11, 1610. He took a very active part in the affairs of the Reformed Church, and presided at the national synods held at Montauban in 1594, at Montpellier in 1598, and at La Rochelle in 1607. Of his numerous works we mention, Athieangoras d'Athenes, Philosophie Chrestien, touchant la Resurrection des Morts (Montauban, 1582): — Brieve et Claire Defense de la Vocation des Ministres de l'Evangile, etc. (ibid. 1598): — Epistola Apologetica ad Plantavitium Pnauseum Semijesuistanm (1608): — Disputationum Theologicarum Prima de Sacra Theologia (1608).
