Bouvenot, Louis, Pierre
Bouvenot, Louis, Pierre, a French theologian and physician, was born at Arbois in 1756. He abandoned the career of arms for the ecclesiastical calling, and was appointed vicar of St. John Baptist at Besancon. At the commencement of the Revolution he became one of the grand-vicars of the metropolitan bishopric of Est, but during the civil disturbances he renounced his ecclesiastical functions, and finally gave his attention to medicine. He died at Sens, July 1, 1830. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
