Vermond, Matthieu Jacques De
Vermond, Matthieu Jacques de a French ecclesiastic, was born about 1735, and was at first a surgeon in a country village, but devoted himself to the study of theology, and in 1757 was made doctor by the Sorbonne. He thereupon became librarian of the college of Mozain; but in 1769 went to Vienna to superintend the education of Marie Antoinette, and after her marriage with the dauphin he remained her reader. He became involved in the dismal Revolutionary times that followed; and after various reverses died in obscurity at Vienna at the close of that century. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Géneralé, s.v.
