Marin, Michel Ange

Marin, Michel Ange a French ecclesiastical writer, was born of a noble family at Marseilles in 1697. In 1714 he was admitted to the order of the Minimes; was employed in their schools, and four times filled a provincial office. He possessed not only a liking for theology and natural history, but also a natural taste for belles-lettres. His style is a little diffuse, and sometimes weak and incorrect, without being entirely void of elegance. He died April 3, 1767, at Avignon. Hlis works are mainly in the department of practical religion.
