Yvon, Peter

Yvon, Peter the friend and successor of Labadie (q.v.), was born at Montauban in 1646. At the age of five he already listened to Labadie's sermons, and his association with him was only severed by the master's death in 1674. He now became the head and leader of the Labadists, settled at Wiewert, in West Frisia, and died in 1687. His writings, mostly in French, but translated into Dutch and German, were once extensively read, and were not without influence upon the formation of Christian life in the Reformed Church. We mention, L'Impiete Convainone: Essentia Religionis Christiance Patefacta: De Praedestinatione: — Emmanuel, ou la Connoissance du Seignieur Jesus, etc. See Moller, Cimbria Litterat. 2:1020 sq.; Theologisches Universallexikon, s.v.; Jocher, Allgemeines Gelehrten-Lexikon, s.v.; Winer, Handhuch der theol. Lit. 1:505. (B.P.)
