François Garasse (1585-1631) was a French Jesuit polemicist. He was known for intemperate attacks on other theologians and thinkers, including Lucilio Vanini and Pierre Charron, whom he called athée et le patriarche des esprits forts.[1]

He was born at Angoulême. At the Jesuit Collège Ste. Marthe in Poitiers in 1607-8, he taught Jean-Louis Guez de Balzac. He died at Poitiers, of the plague.[2]

He was himself made the target of an anti-Jesuit work of 1626 by Duvergier de Hauranne.[3]
