Bernard Des Portes
Bernard Des Portes the founder of the Carthusian house of that name, quitted the Benedictine monastery of Ambournay in 1115, to found the Chartreusedes-Portes, which was reckoned the third of that order. He governed his new community, as prior, until 1147, when his great infirmities obliged him to resign, and he died in 1152. Three of his Letters remain, and are given by Chifflet. See Bibl. Patrum, 24:1501.
