Clugny, Francois De
Clugny, Francois De, a French theologian, was born at Aigues-Mortes, Sept. 4, 1637. He joined the Congregation of the Oratory at the age of fourteen, and was ordained priest at Easter in 1662. He was struck with total blindness, from which, however, he recovered after some time, so that, though not without difficulty, he could again read and write. He began preaching, but died at Dijon, Oct. 21, 1694. He published several works on practical religion, for which see Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
