Du Fosse, Pierre Thomas

Du Fosse, Pierre Thomas a French writer, was born at Rouen in 1634. He was educated at Port Royal des Champs, and the impressions which he received there attached him more and more to his teachers, so that no persecution could prevail upon him to change his views. He was associated with Tillemont, Lemaistre, Arnaud, D'Andilly, and others. When imprisoned in 1666 in the Bastile, he found there De Sacy, who was a great comfort to him. He died in 1698, leaving Vie de Barthelemy des Martyrs (Paris, 1663): — Vie de Thomas de Cantorbury (1674): — Etude sur Tertullien et Origene (1675): — De des Saints, comprising only the: months of January and February:- also commentaries on Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Ruth, Psalms, and the Gospels. His Memoires were published at Utrecht in 1739. See Lichtenberger, Encyclop. des Sciences Religienses, 5. (B.P.)
