Gaillard De Lonjumeau
Gaillard De Lonjumeau a French prelate, was the person who conceived the idea of a grand dictionary of universal history, the execution of which he confided to Moreri, his almoner. For the compilation of this work he made numerous researches in various countries, and especially in Rome, in the library of the Vatican. It was to Gaillard de Lonjumeau that Moreri dedicated the first edition of this work, undertaken in the province, and published at Lyons in 1674. Gaillard was bishop of Apt from 1673 to 1693. He died in 1695. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
