Simon, Honore Richard

Simon, Honore Richard, a French scholar, but no connection of the following, was born at Castellane in the latter part of the 17th century. After having been curate of St. Uze, a small parish in the neighborhood of St. Vallier, he went for his health to Lyons, where he compiled his Grand Dictionnaire de la Bible (1693, fol.), a work the reputation of which is attested by several later editions (ibid. 1713, 1717, 2 vols. fol.), and which maintained its place till supplanted by that of Calmet, who made great use of it in his own Dictionary. Simon died at Lyons in 1693.
