Contents 1 Life 2 Works 3 See Also 4 Notes 5 External links Life He was abbot of the priory of Cuers and a royal librarian.. He was named to the Académie des sciences in 1669 and elected a member of the Académie française in 1672. Also a member of the Académie des Inscriptions, he became its permanent secretary. He was professor of mathematics, then of Greek, at the Collège Royal, from 1686; the king named him its inspector, and at the same time he was elected syndic by its assembly of professors. He was co-founder with Denis de Sallo of the Journal des sçavans, and directed its publication from 1666 to 1674. Readers of the Journal found Sallo outrageously lacking in respectfulness, while also complaining of review articles by Gallois as no more than bland compilations.[1] Voltaire called him a universal scholar, and commented on the Latin lessons he was supposed to have given Colbert in his carriage, travelling between Versailles and Paris.[2] Works His Breviarium Colbertinum was published in 1679. An English translation appeared in 1912-3.[3] See Also List of Roman Catholic scientist-clerics Notes ^ Lucien Paul Victor Febvre, Henri-Jean Martin (1997), The Coming of the Book: the impact of printing 1450-1800 (English translation). ^ Voltaire, Le Siècle de Louis XIV, Catalogue de la plupart des écrivains français qui ont paru dans le Siècle de Louis XIV, pour servir à l’histoire littéraire de ce temps, 1751. ^ Online text.
