Maistre, Joseph Marie de, Count
1910 New Catholic Dictionary
Political philosopher, brother of Xavier de Maistre, born Chambery, France, 1753; died Turin, Italy, 1821. He passed fourteen years at Saint Petersburg as Sardinian plenipotentiary. He was a profound thinker and ranks very high in French letters. He had an intense love of religion, a firm belief in authority, and a detestation of the 18th-century rationalism, as is evidenced in his "Considerations sur la France," "Du pape," and "Les soirÃ©es de Saint Petersbourg."
