JOUIN, Louis, clergyman, born in Berlin, Prussia, 14 June, 1818. He is descended from a Huguenot family that settled in Berlin after the revocation of the edict of Nantes. He was educated by private tutors and afterward entered a college that prepared young men for the administration of large estates. At the age of twenty-two he became a Roman Catholic, and in 1841 he entered the Society of Jesus. He prepared himself for the priesthood in the Roman college, and at the conclusion of his studies was appointed professor of mathematics in the College of Rezzio. The revolution of 1848 forced him to leave Italy, and he came to the United States, where he has since been employed as professor of mental philosophy in Jesuit colleges, with the exception of the years 1875-'7, when he taught philosophy in the College of Montreal. Father Jouin has been for several years professor in the post-graduate course in St. John's college, Fordham, New York He is the author of "Elementa Philosophiae Moralis" (Amiens, 1862; New York, 1873); "Compendium Logicae et Metaphysical" (New York, 1869); and "Evidences of Religion" (1877); and is about to publish a course of lectures that he has delivered on "Church and State."
