DENIS JEAN ACHILLE LUCHAIRE (1846-1908), French historian, was born in Paris on the 24th of October 1846. In 1879 he became a professor at Bordeaux and in 1889 professor of medieval history at the Sorbonne; in 1895 he became a member of the Academic des sciences morales et politiques, where he obtained the Jean Reynaud prize just before his death on the 14th of November 1908. The most important of Achille Luchaire's earlier works is his Histoire des institutions monarchiques de la France sous les premiers Capetiens (1883 and again 1891); he also wrote a Manuel des institutions francaises: periode des Capetiens directs (1892); Louis VI. le Gros, annales'de sa vie et de son regne (189o); and Etude sur les actes de Louis VII. (1885). His later writings deal mainly with the history of the papacy, and took the form of an elaborate work on Pope Innocent III. This is divided into six parts: (i.) Rome et Italie Lucerne (Medicago sativa), 4 nat. size. 1, Flower, enlarged. 2, Half-ripe fruit, ; nat. size. 3, Fruit, enlarged. (1904); (ii.) La Croisade des Albigeois (1905); (iii.) La Papaute et l'empire (1905); (iv.) La Question d'Orient (1906); (v.) Les Royautes vassales du Saint-Siege (1908); and (vi.) Le Concile de Lalran et la reforme de l'Eglise (1908). He wrote two of the earlier volumes of E. Lavisse's Histoire de France.
