He was a Jesuit with a particular interest in science, and in 1836 the Order appointed him professor of mathematics at the college of Sainte-GeneviÃ©ve in Paris. He wrote numerous articles for the press. After he had published a two-volume work on calculus, the Jesuit Order sought to restrict his scientific activities. In 1843 he left the Jesuit Order.
