Ballon, Louise Blanche Therese Perrucard de

a French nun, founder of the Reformed Bernardines, was born in 1691 at the chateau of Vanclie in Savoy. While very young she entered the convent of St. Catllerine-sur-Aninecy, and undertook the reform under the direction of St. Francis of Sales. She introduced this new discipline at Saint-Jeani- de-Maurienne, at Grenoble, at Seyssel, at Vienna, at Lyons, and in other monasteries. Her constitutions were approved at Rome in 1631. She died Dec. 14, 1668. Her religious works were published by P. Grossi of the Oratory (Paris, 1700). See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
