Nagot, Francois-charles

Nagot, Francois-Charles a French ascetic writer, was born at Tours, April 19, 1734. Admitted into the congregation of the priests of Saint-Sulpice, he was sent as professor of theology to the Seminary of Nantes. He was made superior of the house of the Robertins at Paris in 1769, afterwards of the small seminary of Saint- Sulpice, then director of the large seminary. The revolution decided him, in 1791, to come to this country and settle at Baltimore, where Pius VI had just created an episcopal see, comprising at that time all the territory of the United States. At the Monumental City he succeeded in establishing a seminary, and a college which still enjoys all the privileges of a university. He retained the management of these houses till the year 1810, when he was obliged by infirmities to resign. He died at Baltimore, April 9, 1816. His principal writings are, Relation de la conversion de quelques Protestants (1791, 1794, 12mo): — La Doctrine de l'Ecriture sur les miracles (Paris, 1808, 3 volumes, 12mo; a translation of an English work by George Hay):Vie de, M. Olier, cure de Saint-Suilpice (1813, 8vo): — in manuscript different translations of works of English piety. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Genirale, s.v.
