Esprit Fléchier

Fléchier, Esprit (ĕsprēˈ flāshyāˈ) [key], 1632–1710, French writer. He was a famous pulpit orator and became bishop of Nîmes. His principal work is an account of special assizes held at Clermont (1665) for the repression of crime, in which most of the local nobility was involved. Fléchier's manner is witty and detached; he attended the proceedings only as an onlooker.
