Claude Buffier (1661 - 1737)

French philosopher, historian and teacher, born in Poland of French parents, who returned to France and settled at Rouen soon after his birth. He was educated at the Jesuit college there, and he was received into the Order at the age of nineteen. A dispute with the archbishop compelled him to leave Rouen. After a short stay in Rome, he returned to Paris to the college of the Jesuits, where he spent the rest of his life.
