Migne, Jacques Paul (1800-75), a Catholic priest, born at St. Flour, established near Paris in 1836 a great publishing-house, from which issued Collection des Orateurs Sacrcs (100 vols.), Patrologicc Gursus Computus (221 volumes in the Latin series, and 162 in the Greek), and the Encyclopedic Theologique, which appeared between 1846 and 1866 in 171 volumes. The Archbishop of Paris forbade the continuance of the undertaking, and a great fire in 1868 effectually carried out his orders.
