Resource Toolbox

of St. Blancard, a Protestant writer and divine, was born in the first half of the 17th century at Gallargues, in the department of Gard, and died at Berlin in 1703. He was minister at Montpellier, and presided over the last synod of Bas-Languedoc, held at Uzes in 1681; but, having compromised his safety through his zeal for Protestant interests, he withdrew to Switzerland with his family in 1683, and afterwards to Holland. The prince of Orange esteemed him highly, and employed him in several important affairs; among others, on a confidential mission to the elector of Brandenburg, who retained Gaultier at his court, and named him his chaplain. We have from his pen Reflexions generales sur le livre de Mgr. de Meaux, ci-devant eveque Condom, etc. (on Bossuet's Exposition, of the Catholic Doctrine, Beilin, 1685, 12mo): Histoire Apologitique ou defense des libertes des Eglises reformees de France (Amst. 1688, 2 volumes, 12mo): Sermons (Berlin, 1696, 8vo). Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Genesis 19:675; Haag, La France Protestante, s.v. (J.W.M.)
