Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet: (sometimes nicknamed the ‘Eagle of Meaux’), born September 27, 1627 in Dijon and died April 12, 1704, in Paris, is a man of the Church, Bishop of Meaux, French writer and preacher.

A renowned early preacher, he gave sermons and eulogies that are still famous today. He was the author of an abundant body of work on spirituality, the teaching of the Dauphin, the anti-protestant controversy and various polemics, including the one between him and Fénelon on Quietism.

Cardinal Grente viewed him as "perhaps the greatest [orator] the world has ever known”.
He was elected to the Académie Française in 1671.
