Laurentie, Pierre Sebastien

Laurentie, Pierre Sebastien a French Roman Catholic historian and publicist, was born January 21, 1793, at Houg (department of Gers). In 1817 he was professor of rhetoric at the Collige Stanislas in Paris, and in 1818 professor of history at the Polytechnic Institute. In 1823 he was appointed inspector-general of the public schools, but he lost this position in 1826 on account of his opposition to the ministry headed by Villele, whom he had attacked in his journal, La Quotidienne. Laurentie now devoted himself entirely to his journal, which, for a time, was called L'Union Monarchique, and after 1848 merely L'Union. Laurentie died at Paris, February 9, 1876. Besides his articles, he published, De la Justice au xix Siecle (1822): — De

lOrig'ine et de la Certitude des Connaisances Humaines (1826): — Introduction a la Philosophie (1829): — Theorie Catholiques des Sciences (1836; 4th ed. 1846): — Histoire de France (184143, 8 volumes): — Les Rois et le Pupe (1860): — Rome et le Pape (eod.): — Histoire de l'Empire Ronzain (1861-62, 4 volumes): — L'Athisme Scientifique (1862): — Le Livre de M. Renan sur la Vie de Jesus (1863). See Lichtenberger, Encyclop. des Sciences Religieuses, s.v. (B.P.)
