Genoude Antoine Eugene De

Genoude Antoine Eugene De, a French priest and publicist, was born in 1792 at Montelimart. After the first expulsion of Napoleon he entered the service of Louis XVIII, and became adjutant of the prince de Polignac. In 1820 he established the journal Le Defenseur. In 1821 he bought the journal Etoile, the name of which in 1827 was changed into Gazette de France. In 1822 he was ennobled. After being for some time censor under the ministry of Villble, he entered the priesthood, but soon devoted himself again wholly to the editing of political papers. After the Revolution of July he was one of the most violent defenders of the fallen dynasty, and was involved on that account in difficulties with the pope and the French bishops. In 1846 he was elected member of the Chamber of Deputies for Toulouse; and after the outbreak of the Revolution of 1848, he moved in the Chamber of Deputies, though without effect, an appeal to the people concerning a restoration of the elder branch of the Bourbons. Besides several political pamphlets, he wrote, La Raison du Christianisme (3d edit. Paris, 1841, 12 volumes): — Les peres de l'eglise des trois prem. siecles (Paris, 1837): — Lecons et modeles de litt. sacrae (Paris, 1837): — La Vie de Jesus Christ et des Apotres (Paris, 1836; 2d edit. 1846): — Histoire d'un ame (Paris, 1844): — Hist. de France (Paris, 1844-1847, 16 volumes). He also published a new translation of the Bible, as well as of Thomas a Kempis's Imitation of Christ, and new editions of the works of Malebranche, of the spiritual works of Fenelon (1842), and of select works of Bossuet. — Brockhaus, Conversat.
