Charles Rollin (Paris, 1661-1741), son of a Parisian cutler, a fellow at the college of Plessis, taught rhetoric at a very young age before becoming Chair of the Eloquence department at the College de France. From 1669 to 1712, he was head of the College de Beauvais; twice - in 1704 and 1720 - he was Rector of the University. But his convictions and his Jansenist activities led him to leave teaching. He then composed his famous treatise ‘De la manière d'étudier et d'enseigner les Belles-Lettres’, a work better known by the shorter title of ‘Traité des études’. Written at the end of his life, when he could no longer teach, this dense and original work, on the topic of educational reforms, insists particularly on the widespread use of the French language instead of Latin, and on the teaching of history.
