Blampin, Thomas a French theologian and learned Benedictine of the congregation of St. Maur, was born at Noyon in 1640. He entered the abbey of St. Remy at Rheims, where he taught philosophy and theology. His superiors having charge of a new edition of the works of St. Augustine, Blampin distinguished himself by accomplishing this work. He became prior of St. Nicaise at Rheims, from which he passed to that of St. Remy, in the same city, and still later to that of St. Ouen at Rouen. He was appointed in 1708 visitor of the province of Burgundy, and died at St. Benedict upon the Loire, Feb. 13, 1710. He published an edition of St. Augustine's works (Paris, 1679-1700).
