Richard, Jean-Pierre, a French preacher, was born at Belfort, Feb. 7, 1743. In 1760 he was admitted to the Order of Jesuits, and on its dissolution he went to Lorraine, where he superintended the education of the nephew of the prince-bishop. About 1786 he returned to France, and preached in Paris, but did not take the oath. In 1805 he became canon of Notre Dame. He died at Paris Sept. 29, 1820. His Sermons were published in 1822 (Paris, 4 vols. 12mo). See L'Ami de la Religion, 34, 65, 77.
