Longueval, Jacques

Longueval, Jacques a learned French Jesuit, was born in the suburbs of Peronne March 18,1680. At the age of nineteen he entered the Society of Jesus, and afterwards taught rhetoric and theology in different colleges of his order. On account of a violent work published upon the religious quarrels of the period, he was first exiled, but later received permission to reside at the house of professed Jesuits in Paris. He died January 11, 1735. Among his published works are Traite du Schisme (Brussels, 1718) [a Refutation of this work was published in the same year by Meganck]: — Dissertation sur les Miracles (Paris, 1730, 4to): — Histoire de l'Eglise Gallicane (Paris, 1730-1749, 18 volumes, 8vo); Longueval wrote only the first eight volumes, reaching the year 1138; the others have been written by Fontenay, Brumoy, and Berthier. The work has been reprinted at Nimes (1782) and at Paris (1825). Longueval is also the author of the greater part of the Reflexions Morales, an appendix to the Nouveau Testament of P. Lallemant.
