Garier, Julien De Connerre
Garier, Julien De Connerre, an eminent Benedictine of St. Maur, was born about 1670, and died at Paris June 3, 1725. He enjoyed great reputation for learning, and was highly esteemed both as a man and a priest. His superiors entrusted him with the preparation of a new edition of St. Basil, and the result of his labors was one of the best ever produced at St. Maur: Scti. Patris nostri Basilii Opera (Paris, Coignard). The preface is a remarkable production. Garnier, howeverwas able to complete but two volumes. Maran, who continued the work after the death of Garnier, brought out the third and last in 1730. See Histoire litter. de la Congregation de Saint-Maur, page 470; Herzog, Real-Encyklop. 4:662.
