Bourdaloue, Louis (16321704)

Bourdaloue, Louis, a French Jesuit, born at Bourges, called the “king of preachers, and preacher of kings”; one of the most eloquent pulpit orators of France; did not suffer by comparison with Bossuet, his contemporary, though junior; one of the most earnest and powerful of his sermons, the one entitled “The Passion,” is deemed the greatest. His sermons are ethical in their matter from a Christian standpoint, carefully reasoned, and free from ornament, but fearless and uncompromising (16321704).
