Cadry, Jean Baptiste
(better known by his anagram, Darcy), a French theologian, was born in 1680 at Trez, in Provence. He studied first under his father (who was superior of the college of Grimaldi), and afterwards at Paris (1701), where,. having entered orders, he obtained the vicarage of St. Etienne-du- Mont, and later (1716) that of St. Paul. In 1718 he was nominated canon of Laon, but, on account of the papal interference, he returned to Polisseau. He died at Sarigny-sur-Orge, Nov. 25, 1756. He was an opponent to the bull Unigenitus (q.v.), and wrote the last three volumes of the Histoire du Livre des Reflexions Morales et de la Constitution Unigenitus (Amsterdam, 1723-38); the first being prepared by Joh. Louail: — Temoignage des Chartreux au Sujet de la Constitution Unigenitus (1725): — Observations Theologiques et Morales sur les deux Histoires du P. Berruyer (1755). See Nouv. Diet. Historique; Jocher, Allgemeines Gelehrten-Lexikon, s.v.; Winer, Handbuch der theol. Lit. i, 652; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v. (B. P.)
