REMY CEILLIER (1688-1761), Benedictine monk of the Lorraine congregation of St Vannes. He was the compiler of an immense Patrology, Histoire generale des auteurs sacres et ecclesiastiques (23 vols., Paris, 1729-1763), being a history and analysis of the writings of all the ecclesiastical writers of the first thirteen centuries. He put infinite trouble and time into the work, and many portions of it are exceedingly well done. A later and improved edition was produced in Paris, 1858, in 14 vols. Ceillier's other work, Apologie de la morale des peres de l'eglise (Paris, 1718), also won some celebrity.
