Brisacier, Jean De
Brisacier, Jean De a French theologian of the Jesuit order, was born at Blois in 1603. He taught classics and philosophy in several colleges, and afterwards devoted himself to preaching. His zeal against Port Royal gained for him a great deal of credit in his society. He was successively rector of several places, provincial in Portugal, rector of the college of Clermont at Paris, and finally died at Blois in 1668. Among his writings we notice, Le Jansseisme Coanfondu. (Paris, 1651). This work was censured by the archbishop of Paris, M. de Gondi, and strongly combated by Arnauld. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog.
