BOUDIN, JEAN-FRANÇOIS °, known as Father Justin (1736–1811), French Capuchin friar and preacher. Boudin was appointed by Joseph Beni, bishop of Carpentras, at the end of 1783 to deliver the conversionist sermons which the Jews of Carpentras were obliged to attend. Seventeen of the sermons he delivered between 1787 and 1790, as well as his short treatise Notion du Talmud, are preserved in a manuscript in the Avignon public library (Ms. 1525).
