Coret, Jacques a Belgian theologian, was born about the middle of the 17th century. He entered the Jesuit order, and became celebrated by his virtue and zeal for souls. It is said that so many wished to confess to him that he absolved them en masse, not being able to take them singly. He died at Liege, Dec. 16,1721, leaving several mystic works, under the titles of, Journal des Anges: — Maison de l'Eternite: — Le Cinquieme Ange de l'Apocalypse; and a historic work, entitled Vie d'Anne de Beauvais (Lisle, 1667).
