François Garasse

François Garasse (1585-1631) was a French Jesuit polemicist. He was known for intemperate attacks on other theologians and thinkers, including Lucilio Vanini and Pierre Charron, whom he called ''athée et le patriarche des esprits forts''.

He was born at Angoulême. At the Jesuit Collège Ste. Marthe in Poitiers in 1607-8, he taught Jean-Louis Guez de Balzac. He died at Poitiers, of the plague.

He was himself made the target of an anti-Jesuit work of 1626 by Duvergier de Hauranne. Provided by Wikipedia
