Montcheuil, Yves de
MONTCHEUIL, YVES DE
Theologian; b. Paimpol, France, Jan. 30, 1900; d. Grenoble, Aug. 10, 1944. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1917 and was ordained on Aug. 24, 1932. With a dissertation titled L'Intervention de Malebranche dans la querelle du pur amour, published posthumously as Male-branche et le quiétisme (Paris 1946), he earned a doctorate in theology at the Gregorian University, Rome, in 1936. While teaching dogma at the Institut Catholique de Paris from 1935 to 1944, he exercised zealously the functions of chaplain and counselor for the Catholic Action movement in France. His apostolic zeal occasioned his tragic end. He was arrested while offering priestly ministrations to the dying men of the Resistance, and was shot by the Germans at Grenoble. Besides his work on Male-branche, he wrote two others: Problèmes de vie spirituelle (Paris 1946) and L'Église et le monde actuel (Paris 1946). H. de Lubac gathered De Montcheuil's articles in two volumes titled Mélanges théologiques (Paris 1946).
