Claude Fleury (1640–1723)

Fleury, Claude (flė-rē’). A French Church historian and pedagogue; born in Paris, Dec. 6, 1640; died there (?), July 14, 1723. An ‘Ecclesiastical History’ (1691–1720) forms his claim to renown; the work coming down to 1414. ‘A History of French Law’ (1674) and a ‘Historical Catechism’ (1679) are less important achievements.
