SAGARD-THEODAT, Gabriel, French missionary, lived in the 17th century. He was in a Recollet Franciscan convent in Paris in 1615 when Houel, the secretary of Louis XIII., asked the superior of that order to send missionaries to Canada. Sagard entreated to be sent on the mission, but he was not allowed to leave France until eight years afterward. Shortly after his arrival in Quebec he set out for the Huron country with Father Viel. He remained there over two years, when his companion was drowned in Riviere des Prairies (hence called Saut du R6collet), and Sagard returned to France. His writings include " Grand voyage du pays des Hurons, situ6 en l'Amerique, vers lamer Douce, et derniers confins de la Nouvelle-France, dite Canada, oh il est traict6 de tout ce qui est du pays, des moeurs et naturel des sauvages, de leur gouvernement et fagons de faire, tant dans leur pays qu'allant en voyage, de leur foi et eroyance, avec un dictionnaire de la langue huronne" (Paris, 1632), and " Histoire du Canada et voyage que les frSres mineurs recollets v ont faicts pour la conversion des infidelles" (1636). The works of Sagard were very little known until recently. They were republished and edited by Henry E. Chevalier (4 vols., Paris, 1866).
