Loriot was born in the town of Laval, then in the ancient province of Maine. In 1654, at the age of 21, he joined a local Oratorian community, where he spent the next 40 years. At that point, he became an itinerant preacher in the rural regions of northern France.
Loriot became a noted preacher. Many of his sermons were recorded and published.
Loriot finally arrived in Paris, when he joined the noted Oratory on the Rue Saint-Honoré. It was there that he died.
