Bonnet, Simon a French theologian, was born at l'uy-en-Velay. He became, in 1671, a Benedictine of the Congregation of Saint-Maur, and died at Ronien, in 1705, at the age of fifty-three years. He taught philosophy and theology for eleven years, and finally became prior of St. Germer de Flee, where he conceived, in 1696, the project of a work to be called Biblia Maximac Patrum, a compendium of all the best things that the fathers have written on Holy Scripture.
