Blampoix Jean Baptiste
Blampoix Jean Baptiste, a French theologian, was born at Macon, Oct. 16, 1740. He entered the ecclesiastical profession, and after teaching philosophy in his native city was appointed rector of Vandceuvres, near Troyes. During the Revolution, Blampoix took the oath required of the ecclesiastics, and was elected constitutional bishop of Troyes, and attended the national council of 1801. Like all his colleagues, he resigned the episcopal functions, in accordance with the concordat. Having been for some time rector of Arnay, he retired to private life. He died at Macon in 1820. Some articles written by him are published in the Annales de la Religion. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
