Resource Toolbox

a learned French ecclesiastic, was born about 1565, at St. Paulilear Mountbrison, of an ancient' family which took its name from the village where it had lived. Having finished his early education at Billom, in Auvergne, he went to Avignon to study theology, and entered the Order of the Jesuits. (1586)s where he was appointed to teach the humanities, Jealousy at his success in sermonizing led him to leave Avignon and he preached for a time in Motulins, Dijo and Lyons. Henry IV, hearing of his talents, called him to Paris as historiographer-of his reign. (1605); but the Jesuits secreted the royal missive, and Valladier, in disgust, left their order and went first to Paris and thence to Rome, where he obtained of Paul V, letters which secured him from further persecution (July, 1608); He preached in Paris before the court, with great acceptance, and in 1609 was appointed by cardinal Grevy his canon, and in 1611 he received the abbey of St. Arnoud. He again became involved in trouble, however; but in 1621 he was restored to his office. He died at Metz, Aug. 1, 1638. He wrote a, number of secular and religious treatises, which are enumerated in Hoefer Nouv. Biog. Gé neralé, s.v.
