Antonin Brémond

Antonin Brémond was the Master of the Order of Preachers from 1748 to 1755.


Antonin Brémond was a Dominican friar from the Province of Toulouse.[1] He worked as a missionary in Martinique for five years.[1] Under the previous master of his order, Tomás Ripoll, he was an editor of the Order's documents.[1] He also wrote a Useful Manual of the Christian Life for the children of James II of England, who were then in exile in Rome.[1]

He was elected master of the order by acclamation at a General Chapter held in 1748.[1] In poor health, he accomplished little as master, dying in 1755.
