Gery, Andre Guillaume
Gery, Andre Guillaume a French monk and orator, was born at Rheims, February 17, 1727. He entered the congregation of St. Genevieve in 1742, taught philosophy and theology in the colleges of his order, preached with success at Paris, and became successively rector of St. Leger at Soissons, and of St. Ireneus at Lvons. He was elected general superior of his order in 1778. His long intimacy with two prelates not in subjection to Rome, MM. De Fitz-James and Montazet, led to his being suspected of Jansenism. He died in October 1786. His sermons were collected and published at Paris in 1788. He also wrote Dissertation sur le Veritable Auteur de l'Imitation de Jesus Christ (Paris, 1758). See Hoefer, Nouv.
