Constant Fouard

Ecclesiastical writer, born Elbeuf, France, 1837; died there, 1903. Ordained in 1861, he devoted himself to the classics and biblical science, received the degree of licentiate in letters, 1867, and taught classics at Boisguillaume until 1876. As professor of Holy Scripture at Rouen (1876), and member of the Biblical Commission (1903), he continued his study of sacred sciences and in 1880 began to publish "Les Origines de PEglise," a scholarly work written as an answer to Renan, which contains several books on the Life of Christ, Saint Paul, Saint Peter, and Saint John, presenting a faithful picture of early Christianity.
