a reconciliation between Becket and the king, but finding that his interference was useless, and likely to involve himself with Henry, he resolved to retire to a monastery. Many years after he was made canon regular of the abbey of St. Victor at Paris, where he died August 31, 1182. He wrote several works, and among others, a volume of letters, two speeches, one delivered in the council held at Tours, 1163, and the other on occasion of ordaining a bishop, and some pieces of poetry, all printed by Odo Turnebus, the son of Adrian, Paris, 1585, under the title “ Epistolæ, conciones, et epigrammata,” and afterwards inserted in the Bibliotheca Patrum. D'Acheri, in the second volume of his Spicilegium, has a treatise by Arnoul, “ De Schismate orto pošt Honorii II. discessum, contra Girardum episcopum Engolismensem,” the legate of Peter of Leon, the antipope: and in the thirteenth volume, a sermon and five letters. Arnoul's letters are chiefly valuable for the particulars they contain of the history and discipline of his times, and his poetry is favourably spoken of, as to correctness of verse. "

ARNOULT (JOHN BAPTIST); an ex-jesuit, was born in 1689, and died at Besançon in 1753. He was the author of some curious pieces. The first was a collection of French, Italian, and Spanish proverbs, a scarce little work in 12mo, Besançon, 1733, and published under the assumed name of Antoine Dumont, to prevent any, unpleasant consequences to the author for some humorous attacks which it contains on the Jansenists. In 1738, he published under the same name, in Latin, “ A treatise on Grace,” but his most considerable work is “ Le Precepteur,” Besançon, 1747, 4to, somewhat on the plan of Dodsley's Preceptor; and Sabathier says, there are many useful reflections in this work, although it is not well writ. ten. Arnoult attached great importance to a new plan for the reformation of French orthography, and intended to have introduced it in an edition of Joubert and Danet's French and Latin and Latin and French dictionaries, but this he did not live to execute. 3

ARNTZENIUS (JOHN), a learned philologist, was born at Wesel, in 1702, the son of Henry Arntzenius, who had been successively director of the schools of Wesel, Arn.

beim, and Utrecht, and died in 1728. Our author studied law, but devoted himself more to classical literature. At Utrecht he was the pupil of Drakenborch and Duker, and at Leyden, of Burmann and Havercamp, and he had scarcely completed the ordinary course of education, when the reputation he had acquired procured him the offer of director of the lesser schools of Nimeguen; but before accepting this, he took the degree of doctor of laws at Utrecht, and published his thesis, on that occasion, July 1726, “ De nuptiis inter fratrem et sororem,” Nimeguen. In 1728, he was appointed professor of history and rhetoric in the Atheneum of Nimeguen: and in 1742, he succeeded Burmann in his professor's chair at Franeker. He died in 1759. His works are, 1. “ Dissertationes de colore et tinctura comarum et de civitate Romana Apostoli Pauli,” Utrecht, 1725, 8vo. 2. 66 Oratio de delectu scriptorum qui juventuti in scholis prælegendi sunt," Nimeguen, 1726, 4to. 3. “ Oratio de causis corruptæ Eloquentiæ,” ibid. 1728, 4to. 4. An edition of “Aurelius Victor," 1733, 4to, with the entire notes of Domi. nicus Machaneus, Elias Vinctus, Andreas Scottus, and Janus Gruterus, and the excerpta of Sylburgius, and of Anna, daughter of Tanaquil Faber. 5. An edition of “ Plinii Panegyricus,” enriched by excerpta from many manuscripts, and the learned conjectures of Heinsius and Perizonius. Its only fault, Ernesti says, is in defending too pertinaciously the common readings. 6. An edition of the “ Panegyricus of Pacatus," Amst. 1753, 4to. His Latin poems and orations were published after his death by his son John Henry, 1762, 8vo.'

ARNTZENIUS (OTHO), brother of the preceding, was born in 1703, at Arnheim, and died in 1763. He was professor of the belles lettres, first at Utrecht, then at Goude, and at Delft, and lastly at Amsterdam. His first work was a dissertation “ De Milliario aureo," Utrecht, 1728, 4to, reprinted in 1769 by Oelrichs in his “ Thesaurus Dissert. selectissimarum.” In 1735, he published a Variorum edition of the Disticha Catonis, of which an improved reprint was made at Amsterdam in 1754, with two dissertations by Withof, on the author and text of the Distichs. There are also by him some academical ora

He followed the track of study pointed out by his father and uncle, and became law.professor at Groninguen, and afterwards at Utrecht, where he died April 7, 1797, after having long enjoyed high reputation for learning and critical acumen. · Saxius has a long list of his works. His orations on various subjects of law and criticism, enumerated separately by Saxius, were published under the title of “ Miscellanea, Utrecht, 1765, Svo.

ARNU (NICHOLAS), was born at Merancourt, near Verdun, in Lorraine, 1629. He became dominican in 1644, and died at Padua in 1692, professor of metaphysics. We have of his, 1.“ Clypeus Philosophiæ Thomisticæ," Padua, 1686, 8 vols. 8vo. 2. A commentary on the Sum of St. Thomas,” 1691, 2 vols. folio. There is a third production of his in being, on the league between the emperor and the king of Poland, against the grand signior, whom he menaces with the demolition of his empire; and, in order to give weight to this denunciation, he brings together a series of prophecies, ancient and modern. This book appeared at Padua in 1684. ?
