Claude-François-Xavier Millot (5 March 1726 in Ornans, Doubs – 20 March 1785 in Paris) was a French churchman and historian.

Biography[edit]

Whilst still young Millot entered the Jesuit order, teaching in many of their collèges, such as that at Lyon where he taught rhetoric. Expelled for praising Montesquieu, he left the Jesuits. Made grand-vicar by the archbishop of Lyon, Millot wrote historical accounts and in 1768 received a chair in history at the collège de la Noblesse, founded at Parma by the marquis of Felino. Received into the Académie française in 1777, he was made preceptor to the duc d'Enghien in 1778.
