Husisseau, Jacques D1
Husisseau, Jacques d'1
a French theologian, was born in the latter half of the 16th century. He entered the monastery at Marmoutiers, and was made great prior of his order in 1594. Refusing in 1604 admission to Matthieu Renusson, visitor of the order of St. Benoit for the province of Tours, he was deposed from his position, deprived of all power, and excommunicated. He, however, succeeded in regaining his position. At the time of his death, Sept. 24,1626, he was provincial of the Benedictine congregation of exempts in France. He published, for the use of his abbey, a collection of prayers, entitled Enchiridion Precum (Tours, 1607) — Supplement a la Chronique des Abbés de Marmoutiers (1615) — Chronique des Prieurs (1625). This last-named work Huisseau translated himself into Latin. — Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Géneralé 25, 468 sq.
