Fabricy, Gabriel a French archaeologist, was born at Saint-Maximin, in the Provence, about 1725, entered the Dominican order, and became professor of theology at Rome where he died in 1800. Among his writings are Censoris theologi Diatribe, qua bibliographiae antiquariae et sacrae critices capita aliquot illustrantur (Rome, 1782, 8vo). He entered upon the study of Pheonician antiquities and literature, but did not live to complete his plans; the partial fruit of his labors appears in De Phaeniciae Litteraturae Fontibus (Rome, 1803, 2 volumes, 8vo). Perhaps his best work is Des Titres primitifis de la Revelation, ou considerations critiques sur la purete et l'integrite du texte original des livres saints de l'ancien Testament (Rome, 1772, 2 volumes, 8vo), which is still of value in Biblical criticism. — Biog.
