Maurists

Maurists, a congregation of reformed Benedictines, with head-quarters in Paris, disbanded in 1792; were through the 17th and 18th centuries noted for their services to learning; they published many historical and ecclesiastical works, including a “History of the Literature of France,” and boasted in their number Montfauçon, Mabillon, and other scholars.
