Laurent, Johann Theodor

Laurent, Johann Theodor a French prelate, was born July 6, 1804, at Aix-la-Chapelle. He made himself especially conspicuous by his opposition to the Hermesians (q.v.), and in recognition of his merits he was appointed bishop of Cherson, in partibus infidelium. As he could not reside in Hamburg, where he intended to live, he went to Rome, and was in 1841 appointed apostolic-vicar at Luxemburg, but was recalled, in 1848, on account of his too rigorous procedure. He retired to Simpelvelde, in the province of Limburg, and died February 20, 1884. (B.P.)
