Robert GaguinRobert Gaguin (older spelling: ''Robert Guaguin'', winter of 1433-34 – May 22, 1501) was a noted French Renaissance humanist and philosopher; he was minister general of the Trinitarian Order. He was born at Calonne-sur-la-Lys near Béthune in what was the county of Flanders and the Duchy of Burgundy. He and his brother Christophe lost their father at an early age, and his mother placed him in the Trinitarian convent of Préavin, where he began his studies. He later attended the University of Paris.
He was an influential humanist, who was a friend of Publio Fausto Andrelini from Forlì, an associate of Erasmus and a student of Gregory Tifernas.
In his later years, he published a reformation of the statues of the Trintarian Order on August 30, 1497. He died in Paris on May 22, 1501 at the age of sixty-seven and was interred at the church of the convent of the Trinitarians.
He also translated several works from Latin to Middle French, including Caesar's ''Gallic Wars'' which was published in Paris in 1485 by Antoine Vérard, works from the third decade of Titus Livius, and Giovanni Pico della Mirandola's ''Conseils prouffitables contre les ennuis et tribulations du monde'' in 1498. He translated Alain Chartier's ''Curial'' into Latin from Middle French in 1473. Provided by Wikipedia
