Fabre, Jean Claude a French ecclesiastic and father of the Oratory, was born at Paris in 1668, and died there October 22, 1753. In an edition of Richelet's Dictionnaire he inserted some passages which brought him under censure, and he was forced to quit the Oratorian order. He is chiefly known as the continuator of Fleury's Histoire ecclisiastique, of which he prepared volumes 21-35. — Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Gen,. 16:923.
