Chauvelin, Henri Philippe

Chauvelin, Henri Philippe, a French theologian, was born about 1716. He was very active in politico- religious affairs, especially in hostility to the Jesuits. In 1750 he wrote on the subject of ecclesiastical immunities, and the parliament of Paris, in 1753, issued a decree, in consequence of which he was arrested with three of his colleagues, and imprisoned at Mt. Saint-Michel. On recovering his libert- Chauvelin commenced another series of attacks upon the Jesuits, which, on May 9, 1767, resulted in their banishment. He died Jan. 14, 1770. See Hoefer, Nouv.
