Charles François Lhomond (1727 -1794) was a French priest. He spent twenty years as an educator at the Collège du Cardinal-Lemoine in the Latin Quarter of Paris, and afterwards was professor emeritus at the University of Paris.

His most famouse works are "De viris illustribus urbis Romae" and "Epitome Historiae Sacrae", texbooks written entirely in a very elegant and clear Latin.

We provide you the opportunity to listen the audio-book edition of Lhomond's "De viris illustribus" read by Professor Jerez Sánchez, with the ecclesiastical pronunciation.
