Pouget, Antoine

Pouget, Antoine a French Benedictine monk, was born in 1650 in the diocese of Beziers. He entered the Congregation of St. Maur in 1674, and devoted himself to the study of mathematics, in which he is said to have been very proficient, although he published nothing about that science. He was a professor of the Hebrew language, and taught distinguished pupils, among others Dom Guarin. While teaching this language, he composed a very easy method, under the title Institutiones linguae Hebraicae. The work was not printed, but there are numerous copies of it. Pouget published, in collaboration with Montfaucon, the Latin translation of a volume of Analecta Graeca (1688, 4to). He made, together with Dom Martianay, an edition of the works of Jerome, called the edition of the Benedictines (Paris, 1693-1706, 5 vols. fol.), of which he directed alone the first volume. He died at Soreze Oct. 14, 1709. — Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Géneralé, s.v. See Le Cerf, Bibl. des Auteurs de la Congreg. de St. Maur; Fisquet, Biog. (indite) de l'Ilerault.
