Saint-jure, Jean Baptiste De

At the age of sixteen he joined the Jesuits, and was superior successively of the monasteries at Amiens, Alencon, Orleans, and Paris. He was one of the Jesuits who went into England during the reign of Charles I; but the condition of the country was so unsettled that he returned to his native land. He died at Paris, April 30, 1657. He wrote several works which have been reprinted, even at the present day. We mention De la Connaissance et de I'Amour de Jesus- Christ (1634): — Methode pour bien mourir (1640): L'Homme Spirituel (1646): — L'Idee d'un Parfait Chretien, ou la Vie de M. de Renty (1651): — L'Homme Religieux (1657);
