Montalembert, Charles Forbes, count de
(1810-1870)
   journalist, political figure
   Born in London, the son of an émigré Frenchman and a scottish Protestant, Charles Forbes, count de Montalembert, went to Paris when he was young and joined the group of liberal Catholics around HENRI LACORDAIRE and FÉLICITÉ LAMENNAIS, who were collaborating on L'Avenir (1830). After the ideas found in this newspaper were condemned in the papal encyclical Mirari Vos (1832), Montalem-bert accepted this and separated from Lamennais. A member of the Chamber of Peers, where he spoke out for religious freedom and freedom in education, he was elected, after the revolution of 1848, to the Constituent Assembly, where he took his place with the Right, supporting the policies of napoléon III. He served in the legislature until 1857. Director of Correspondant (a liberal Catholic journal), he left Histoire de sainte Élisabeth (1836), a work on Intérêts catholiques au XIXe siècle (1852), and a study Les Moines d'Occident depuis saint Benoît jusqu'à saint Bernard (1860-67). Montalembert was elected to the adadémie française in 1852.
