Beaumont, Christophe de (17031781)

Beaumont, Christophe de, archbishop of Paris, born at Périgord, “spent his life in persecuting hysterical Jansenists and incredulous non-confessors”; but scrupled to grant, though he fain would have granted, absolution on his deathbed to the dissolute monarch of France, Louis XV.; issued a charge condemnatory of Rousseau's “Émile,” which provoked a celebrated letter from Rousseau in reply (17031781).
