Menot, Michel a French preacher, was born about 1440. He belonged to the Order of the Gray Friars, among whom he taught theology for several years; His sermons were of a peculiar make up half in barbarous Latin, half in burlesque French,. and filled with coarse jests and trivialities; he nevertheless gained great reputation, rather for his oddity than any display of ability, and his enthusiastic hearers surnamed him "the golden trigend. Menot died at Paris in 1518. The printer Claude Chevalier collected a certain number of Menot's sermons, which appeared under the title Sermones quadragesimales olim Turonis declamati (Paris, 1519 and 1525, 8vo), very rarely seen at present.
