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).

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
