VARLET, Dominque Marie, French missionary, born in France in 1678; died in Utrecht, Holland, in 1742. He was ordained a priest in 1706, and about 1712 was appointed superior of the priests in the valley of the Mississippi by the directors of the Seminary of foreign missions of Paris. After his arrival in Canada he was named vicar-general, especially for Fort La Mobile and Fort Louis, by Bishop Saint Vallier, of Quebec, with jurisdiction over all priests along Mississippi river except Jesuits. He spent six years on this mission, visiting the country from Cahokia to the Gulf. He returned to Europe in 1718, and was appointed bishop of Ascalon and coadjutor to the bishop of Babylon. When he was on his way to the East, intelligence was brought to the pope that he was an adherent of the doctrines of Jansenius. He was at once ordered to return to Rome ; but, instead of doing so, he went to Utrecht and was one of the principal agents in founding the Jansenist church of that city. He consecrated fore' archbishops of the Jansenist church in succession, and was several times excommunicated by the pope.
