Moreau, Mace a French martyr to Protestant Christianity, was born in the first half of the 16th century, and flourished at Troyes, in Champagne. He was reared in the Roman Catholic faith, but about 1547 accepted the Reformed faith, and went to Geneva to study theology. In 1550 he returned to France, going about the country distributing tracts that might turn men's attention from this world's affairs to spiritual things. While at Troyes he was entrapped by Romanists, and after a short imprisonment brought to trial before the Inquisition, and condemned to death at the stake unless he should recant. This he refused to do; and he continued steadfast even at the stake, " until he was smothered by the flames, and his voice on earth forever hushed." See Hurst, Martyrs to the Tract Cause (N.Y. 1872, 18mo), page 111.
