Lenormant, Charles

Lenormant, Charles a French archaeologist and numismatician, was born in Paris, June 1, 1802. In 1828 he travelled in Egypt, was in 1837 conservator at the national library, and after 1835 acted as Guizot's substitute at the Sorbonne, where his lectures, savoring too much of Romish orthodoxy, often caused disturbances, especially in 1846, so that he had finally to give up his lecturing. In 1848 he was called as professor of Egyptian archaeology at the Colldge de France, and died at Athens, November 24, 1859. Of his works we mention, Tresor de Numismatique et de Glyptique (1836-50, 5 volumes): Elite des Monuments Ceranzographiques (1844-57, 3 volumes). (B.P.)
