Cambaceres, Labbe De
Cambaceres, l'Abbe De, a French priest, uncle of Atienne, was born at Montpellier, in 1721, and became archdeacon there. In 1757 he preached before king Louis XV, and in 1768 delivered his beautiful panegyric of St. Louis, which elicited from the congregation, though in a church, the most unbounded tokens of applause. He became a celebrated preacher, and published,, besides the Panegyrique (1768, 4to), three volumes of Sermons (1781, 12mo, and 1788). See Biog. Universelle, vi, 589.
