Pavie, Jean- Baptiste-Raimond De abbe De Fourguevaux, grandson of Francois, was born in 1693 at Toulouse. He enlisted in the regiment of the Roi d'Infctnterie, and obtained a lieutenancy.

In devoting him self to works of piety, he took part in religious quarrels, and wrote many books of devotion or controversy: we cite from him, Traitl de la Confiance Chreitiezne (Paris, 1728,.1781), which occasioned great disputes; and Catechisme historique et dogmatigell (ibid. 1729, 2 vols.
