Bouquin, Charles, a French Dominican:, was born at Tarascon in 1622. He was particularly distinguished by the success of his controversies with the Calvinists, against whom many French bishops eagerly sought the aid of his services. His plan of opposing them was to mount a rival pulpit near their preachers, and, taking the sermons which they had delivered, to subject them to the test of Holy Scripture, the teaching of the fathers, and the decisions of the councils. He died in his convent at Buix, Feb. 14, 1698, leaving many works; among them, Commentarius in Prosam seu Cainticum D. Thomae (Lyons, 1677, fol.): — Sermones-Apologetici, quibus Sanctee Catholicce ac R. Eccl. Fides contra Novatores Defenditur (ibid. 1689, fol.): —
Instructions Chraetiennes et Orthodoxes en Forme de Catechisme (Carpentras, 1686, 1693, 12mno): — Sermons, in French, for Advent, Lent, the octave of the Feast of the Holy Sacrament, and all Sundays and festivals. These remain in MS.
