Fenelon, Francois de Salignac de La Mothe-fenelon 1651-1715

French prelate; born in Dordogne, France, Aug. 6, 1651; was sent to Canada while yet inferior in orders, and, during his missionary service there, he so boldly attacked the public authorities for their shortcomings that Frontenac had him arrested, while serving in the Seminary of St. Sulpice, and put in prison. It is believed that this noted archbishop, orator, and author received many hints, while engaged in missionary work in Canada, which were subsequently put into telling form in his noted Aventures de Telemaque (1699). He died in Cambria, France, Jan. 7, 1715.
