Lebon, Joseph

Lebon, Joseph a noted French priest and politician, was born Sept. 25,1765, at Arras; pursued his studies under the Brethren of the Oratory, and entered their order afterwards; then taught rhetoric at one of their colleges; but upon the outbreak of the Revolution he caught the intoxication of the hour, and finally became one of the worst Terrorists, mingling beastly profligacy with unquenchable bloodthirstiness. He was particularly severe upon the clergy, more especially monastics; but when the reaction set in he suffered for his conduct death-punishment by the guillotine in 1795, at Amiens. See Lacroix's Pressense, Religion and the Reign of Terror, p. 200, 407.
