"The Military Life of Louis Philippe," (1841,) a " His-

and a "History of Napoleon III.," (1853.) Died 1863.

Pascal, pas'kal, [Fr. pron. pts'ktl' ; Lat. PASCHA'LIS,]
(BLAISE,) a celebrated French philosopher and mathe-
matician, was born at Clermont-Ferrand, in Auvergne,
on the igth of June, 1623. He was the only son of
fitienne Pascal, president of the court of aids, and An-
toinette Begon. He was very inquisitive in his early
childhood, and showed an extraordinary aptitude for
geometry ; but his father, who directed his education,
wished him to study the ancient languages, to the ex-
clusion of geometry, and carefully concealed from him
all works on that science. In his twelfth year, however,
he was surprised in the act of demonstrating proposi-
tions, having privately discovered or learned the elements
of geometry without the aid of books. His father then
ceased to restrain him from the study of the science to
which he was so powerfully attracted. It is stated that
at the age of sixteen he wrote a treatise on Conic Sec-
tions which astonished Descartes. He made rapid pro-
gress in mathematics, and soon began to associate with
Mersenne and Roberval. About the age of eighteen he
invented an ingenious calculating-machine. His consti-
tution was always delicate, and his health was probably
impaired by excessive application to study. After the
age of eighteen he was a continual sufferer. In 1648 he
made with the barometer, on the mountain called Puy de
Dome, a celebrated experiment, which established the
theory of atmospheric pressure and exploded the ancient
error that nature abhors a vacuum. He wrote two treat-
ises entitled "On the Equilibrium of Fluids," and " On
the Weight of the Atmosphere." In the experiment
just mentioned he was assisted by M. Perier, his brother-
in-law. Impressed by powerful religious convictions, he
renounced in 1649 the brilliant prospect of temporal re-
nown towards which his genius was conducting him, and
turned his attention from scientific pursuits. In 1654 he
narrowly escaped from a dangerous accident to which he
was exposed by his unruly horses as he was riding in a
carriage on the Pont de Neuilly. This event confirmed
his resolution to devote himself to religious duties and
a life of retirement. He became very abstemious in his
diet, denied himself many innocent enjoyments, and
subjected himself to a severely ascetic discipline. It is
stated that he beggared himself by his prodigal bene-
factions to the poor, and that he wore beneath his clothes
a girdle of iron armed with sharp points as an instru-
ment of self-imposed penance. He entered the cloister
of Port-Rtoal, to which his sister Jacqueline had retired
several years before, and there enjoyed the society of
Arnauldf Le Saci, Nicole, Saint-Cyran, (Duvergier,) and
other Jansenist writers.

In 1656 he produced his celebrated " Provincial Let-
ters," the full title of which is " Lettres ecrites par Louis
de Montalte a un Provincial de ses Amis et aux Jesuites
ur la Morale et la Politique de ces Peres," (" Letters
written by Louis de Montalte to the Jesuits," etc.)
"Pascal," says Hallam, "by his 'Provincial Letters,"



did more to ruin the name of Jesuit than all the con-
troversies of Protestantism or all the fulminations of
the Parliament of Paris. . . . He has accumulated so
long a list of scandalous decisions, and dwelt upon
them with so much wit and spirit, and yet with so
serious a severity, that the order of Loyola became a
byword with mankind." ("Introduction to the Litera-
ture of Europe.") Voltaire expressed the opinion that
" Moliere's best comedies do not excel these Letters in
wit, nor the compositions of Bossuet excel them in sub-
limity." The most competent French critics, including
Voltaire and D'Alembert, concur in the judgment
that the "Provincial Letters" contributed more than
any other composition to form and polish the French
language. There is not a single word in these Letters
that has become obsolete. "The severely pure and
simple taste," says Henry Rogers, "which reigns in
Pascal's style seems, when we reflect on those vices
which more or less infected universal letters, little less
than a miraculous felicity. . . . Upon all the great fea-
tures of his moral character one dwells with the serenest
delight. Greatly as he is to be admired, he is yet more
to be loved. His humility and simplicity, conspicuous
as his genius and acquisitions, were those of a very
child." ("Edinburgh Review" for January, 1847.) In
one instance he relapsed into the study of the abstract
sciences which he had renounced. About 1658 he di-
verted his attention from the pain which deprived him
of sleep by entertaining a luminous idea which presented
itself to him and led him to some important discoveries
in relation to the problem of the cycloid. Before he
made these public, he challenged the mathematicians of
Europe to solve the problem, and offered a prize to him
who should succeed. Several persons competed for the
prize, but the judges decided that none of their solutions
fulfilled the conditions of the challenge. He published
in 1659 a Treatise on the Cycloid, ("Traite general de
la Roulette.") He meditated and began to compose an
extensive and systematic work on the fundamental truths
of religion and the evidences of Christianity, which he
did not live to finish ; but he left in manuscript nume-
rous detached sentences which are supposed to be frag
ments of that work. Theywere published in 1670, undei
the title of " Thoughts of Pascal," (" Pensces de Pascal,")
not without suppressions and alterations. A more cor-
rect edition was published by M. Prosper Faugere in
1844. "The Thoughts of Pascal," says Hallam, "are
to be ranked, as a monument of his genius, above the
'Provincial Letters, though some have asserted the
contrary. They burn with an intense light ; condensed
in expression, sublime, energetic, rapid, they hurry away
the reader, till he is scarcely able or willing to distin-
guish the sophisms from the truth they contain. For
that many of them are incapable of bearing a calm
scrutiny is very manifest to those who apply such a
test. The notes of Voltaire, though always intended to
detract, are sometimes unanswerable ; but the splendour
of Pascal's eloquence absolutely annihilates, in effect
on the general reader, even this antagonist." (" Intro-
duction to the Literature 01 Europe.")

Among his works are " New Experiments on the Va-
cuum," ("Nouvelles Experiences touchant le Vide,")
" History of the Cycloid," (" Histoire de la Roulette,")
and " De 1'Esprit geome'trique." He endured with for-
titude the maladies which in his latter years were
aggravated by his ascetic habits, and died in Paris on
the igth of August, 1662. His complete works were
published by Bossut, (in 5 vols. Svo, 1779.) Prosper
Faugere published in 1844 two volumes of "Thoughts,
Fragments, and Letters of Blaise Pascal," many of
which had never before been printed. " His intellectual
powers," says Macaulay, " were such as have rarely been
bestowed on any of the children of men ; and the vehe-
mence of the zeal which animated him was but too well
proved by the cruel penances and vigils under which
his macerated frame sank into an early grave. His
spirit was the spirit of Saint Bernard ; but the delicacy
of his wit, the purity, the energy, the simplicity of his
rhetoric, had never been equalled, except by the great
masters of Attic eloquence. All Europe read and
admired, laughed and wept. The Jesuits attempted to

some of which were printed in 1638. The poet Corneille,
who often visited the family of Pascal, aided in the de-
velopment of her poetic talent She became religious in
1646, and entered the convent of Port-Royal in 1652.
She wrote a powerful letter on the formulary which the
nuns were required to sign, and which condemned Jan-
senism. She died in 1661. " To annihilate self," says
M. Vinet, "and then to efface the most minute traces of
that very annihilation, had been the task of this heroic
girl for years. She had deemed it her especial duty to
mortify her noble intellect ; but she was unable to destroy
it : it still clung to her. And, though every thing which
she achieved or wrote bears the stamp of mental supe-
riority, there is nothing comparable in this respect to
the 'Letter on the Formulary.'"

the pope after a violent resistence, and extorted from
him a concession of the right of investiture. This con-
cession of Paschal was condemned by a council which
he convoked. He was too feeble and irresolute to main-
