Bernardin of Pequigny
Bernardin Of Pequigny (Lat. a Piconio), a French theologian, was born about 1633 at Pequigny, in Picardy. He taught theology successfully in the Capuchin order, to which he belonged, and died at Paris in 1709. He wrote, Pratique Eficace pour bien vivre et bien mourir (Lyons, 1701; in German, Friesburg, 1878): — Retraite Spirituelle (ibid. eod.): — Triplex Expositio in Evangelio (Paris, 1704, 1706): — Triplex Expositio in Epistolas D. Pauli (ibid. 1704, 1726).
This book, one of many of this kind, merited the eulogy bestowed upon it by Clement XI. The fifth edition of an abridgment of this wovrk by the author appeared in 1820. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.; Landon, Eccles. Dict. s.v.
