A Benedictine monk of the Congregation of St.-Maur, b. in the Diocese of Chartres, 1669; professed at the Monastery of St. Faron de Meaux, 1687; d. 11 December, 1726. He was the author of "Histoire de l'abbaye royale de Saint-Germain-des-Prés" (Paris, 1724). This valuable history of the celebrated Benedictine monastery contains biographies of the abbots that ruled over it, since its foundation by Childeric I in 543 and many important historical events relative to the famous abbey. Bouillart also edited a martyrology of Usuard. In this publication he attempts to establish the genuineness and authenticity of the manuscript preserved at Saint-Germain-des-Prés, against the Jesuit hagiographer Du Sollier, who in his revised edition of Usuard's martyrology had paid no attention to this manuscript.
