Georges, Dominique

Georges, Dominique a French theologian, was born at Cutri, near Longwy, Lorraine, in 1613. He completed his course of philosophy at the College of the Jesuits at Pont-a-Mousson, entered orders, and was appointed, in 1637, curate of Circourt. Some time after he returned to Paris, went into the community of St. Nicolas-du-Chardonnet, and later into the abbey of the reformed Cistercians. At the age of forty years he was placed in charge of the abbey of Val Richer. In 1664 he was sent with the abbot of La Trappe to Rome, to solicit a general reform of the order of Citeaux. On his return he established this reform in his abbey at Val Richer, which was a course of such extreme austerity that many were unable to follow it, and he was obliged to modify it. He died November 8, 1693. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
