Raulin, Jean

Raulin, Jean a French preacher, was born at Toul in 1443. After finishing his studies, he received the degree of D.D. Before this time he had composed a commentary upon the Logic of Aristotle. In 1481 he was made president of the college at Navarre, and so acquitted himself that he was greatly esteemed. Desiring to live a more secluded life, he entered the Abbey of Clugny in 1497, and by his exemplary life led many others to follow his example. Under the direction of cardinal Amboise, he greatly aided in reforming the Order of St. Benedict. Raulin enjoyed the same reputation as Barlette, Millaid, and Menot. His sermons were plain, methodical, and replete with citations made from sacred writings and scholars. He wrote, Epistoloe (Paris, 1520): — Doctrinale de Triplici Morte, Naturali, Culpoe, et Gehennoe (ibid. 1520). His Sermons in Latin were published in Paris in 1642. He died Feb. 6, 1514.
