Charles Rollin (1661-1741) was a French academic and educationalist, in 1699 he was appointed principal of the Collège de Beauvais. Hi Jansenist principles led to limits on his progression, and Rollin's literary work dates chiefly from the later years of his life, when he had been forbidden to teach. His Roman history was in much part a compilation, and was a generally uncritical study. [xii], 372., xliv, 340., [xxiv], 376., [xxxii], 352., [xvi], 406., [xx], 384., [xvi], 372.
