Biography of Louis Lallemant

Louis Lallemant (1587-1635) was born at Châlons-sur-Marne and died at Bourges. After completing his studies under the Fathers of the Society of Jesus, he entered that order in 1605 and followed the usual course of study and teaching. He then taught philosophy and theology for some time until he was made master of novices, an office he filled for four years. He was then appointed director of the fathers in third probation; but after three years in this difficult post he broke down in health and was sent to the college of Bourget, in the hope that change of occupation would restore him. This hope was not to be fulfilled, and he died a few months later. He is known today mainly for his Doctrine Spirituelle, a collection of maxims and instructions gathered together by Fr Jean Rigoleuc, one of his disciples, which details very thoroughly his spiritual method.

His work is featured in For God’s Greater Glory.
