Loriquet, Jean Nicolas

Loriquet, Jean Nicolas a French Jesuit, famous on account of his historical falsifications, was born August 5, 1760, at Epernay, Champagne. He was professor at the Seminary of Argentiere, which was closed by Napoleon in 1807. The events of 1814 made the Jesuits come forward in great numbers, and their colleges were multiplied. Loriquet was intrusted with the direction of the schools at Aix, Provence, and St. Acheul, Picardy, and the pupils who were under his charge were imbued with that spirit which has been detrimental to modern society. In 1830 the people of St. Acheul destroyed the school there, and the reverend fathers had to quit the place. Loriquet went to Switzerland, where he worked in behalf of his order. Under Louis Philippe he returned to France, and died at Paris, April 9, 1845. Loriquet was a prolific writer. For a list of his works, see Lichtenberger, Encyclop. des Sciences Religieuses, s.v.
