Bigne Marguerin De La
Bigne Marguerin De La a French theologian, was born at Bernieres-le-Patry in 1546, and first studied at Caen, then went to Paris, where he was made doctor in the Sorbonne. Seconded by his superiors, he gave a collection of the Fathers of the Church, an edition of which, commenced in 1575, was completed in 1578. He was appointed successively canon of Bayeux, theologist of that diocese, and dean of the Church of Mons. Being sent to the provincial Council of Rouen in 1581, he drew down upon himself the animadversion of his bishop by sustaining against him the prerogatives of his chapter, and he finally resigned his canonship. He died at Paris about 1590. He wrote, Bibliotheca Veterunm Psatrun et Antiquarsumn Scariptorumn Ecclesiasticorum Latine (Paris, 1575): — Appendix, sive Tomus Nonus (1579; 2d ed. Paris, 1589): — Statuta Synodalia Parisiensium Episcoparnum Galonis, Adonis et Willielmi; Item, Decreta Petri et Galteri Senonensium Episcoparum (ibid. 1578): — S. Isilori lispalensis Opera (ibid. 1580). See Chalmers, Biog. Dict. s.v.; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, 8. V.
