Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Esprit Fl chier (June 10, 1632 - February 16, 1710) was a French preacher and author, Bishop of N mes from 1687 to 1710.He was born at Pernes-les-Fontaines, in the d partement of Vaucluse, in the Comtat Venaissin, and brought up at Tarascon by his uncle, Hercule Audiffret, superior of the Congr gation des Doctrinaires. Fl chier entered the order, but on the death of his uncle, he left it, owing to the strictness of its rules, and went to Paris, where he devoted himself to writing poetry. His French poems met with little success, but a description in Latin verse of a tournament (carrousel, circus regius), given by Louis XIV around 1662, brought him a great reputation.show more
