Antonin Cloche (1628 - 1720) was the Master of the Order of Preachers from 1686 to 1720.
Antonin Cloche was from a rich French family.
Cloche was unanimously elected master at the Dominican chapter held in 1686 at Rome after the death of the previous master de Monroy.
As master, he was a proponent of popular preaching along the lines of the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament. Jansenism and Gallicanism continued spreading in the French order during his mastership. He lived as a great lord, hosting many ecclesiastical dignitaries at his country house in San Pastore.
