Dom Jean-Baptiste Chautard


Jean-Baptiste Chautard (1858-1935) entered the Cistercian Fraternity at Aiguebelle, France, at the age of nineteen. In 1897, he was elected Abbot of Chambarand, and from 1899 until his death, he served as Abbot of Sept-Fons. He also directed several other Cistercian monasteries. Dom Chautard is perhaps best known for his writings on the apostolate.
