Excerpt from Library of Religious Biography, Vol. 8
The materials of this biography have been drawn from the admirable work of the Abbé Janvier, Dean of the Chapter of the Metropolitan Church of Tours and Priest of the Holy Face, which appeared in 1879, and of which an excellent abridgment, composed by the same author, was subsequently published in 1881. We have also consulted his later and shorter publication, giving an account of the Work of the Holy Face, of which he is now the Director, and of its development since M. Dupont's death, together with a brief historical notice of its founder. The Abbé Janvier knew M. Dupont intimately for many years, and has spared no pains or research to enrich his interesting biography with the records of its saintly subject preserved by others, whether as embodied in letters received from him or treasured up in their memories.
