Brochard, Michel a French scholar, was priest and professor in the college of Mazarin. He died in 1729. We are indebted to him for the Bibliotheca Fayana (published by Martin, Paris, 1725, with a catalogue of authors): — some editions of l'Imitation de Jesus Christ: — of Catullus, Tibullus, and Propertius (ibid. 1723): — of Horace (1728). He also aided in correcting the text of the work of Pogge, De Varietate Fortunae (Paris, 1723). See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
