Bolduc, Jacques, a French theologian, was born at Paris about 1580. He was a Capuchin monk, and his oratorical talent acquired for him some reputation. His theological works were sought for on account of their singularity, and for the paradoxes which they contained. He wrote, Commentarium in Epistolam S. Judce (Paris, 1620): — Commentariae ir Librum Job (ibid. 1619, 1631, 1638): — De Ecclesia post Legem (ibid. 1630): — De Ecclesia ante Leagem (Lyons, 1626): — De Orgio Christiano libritres, in quius Declarantur Antiquissima Sacro-sanctce Eucharistica Typica Mysteria (ibid. 1640). These ancient mysteries consisted, according to the author, in the institution of the sacrament of the eucharist by Adam, who cultivated wheat, and by Noah, who made wine. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog.
