Description

In 1815, M. Charles-Francois-Bienvenu Myriel was Bishop of D He was

an old man of about seventy-five years of age; he had occupied the see

of D since 1806.

Although this detail has no connection whatever with the real substance

of what we are about to relate, it will not be superfluous, if merely

for the sake of exactness in all points, to mention here the various

rumors and remarks which had been in circulation about him from the very

moment when he arrived in the diocese. True or false, that which is said

of men often occupies as important a place in their lives, and above all

in their destinies, as that which they do. M. Myriel was the son of a

councillor of the Parliament of Aix; hence he belonged to the nobility

of the bar. It was said that his father, destining him to be the heir of

his own post, had married him at a very early age, eighteen or twenty,

in accordance with a custom which is rather widely prevalent in

parliamentary families. In spite of this marriage, however, it was said

that Charles Myriel created a great deal of talk. He was well formed,

though rather short in stature, elegant, graceful, intelligent; the

whole of the first portion of his life had been devoted to the world and

to gallantry.

The Revolution came; events succeeded each other with precipitation; the

parliamentary families, decimated, pursued, hunted down, were dispersed.

M. Charles Myriel emigrated to Italy at the very beginning of the

Revolution. There his wife died of a malady of the chest, from which she

had long suffered. He had no children. What took place next in the fate

of M. Myriel? The ruin of the French society of the olden days, the fall

of his own family, the tragic spectacles of '93, which were, perhaps,

even more alarming to the emigrants who viewed them from a distance,

with the magnifying powers of terror, did these cause the ideas of

renunciation and solitude to germinate in him? Was he, in the midst of

these distractions, these affections which absorbed his life, suddenly

smitten with one of those mysterious and terrible blows which sometimes

overwhelm, by striking to his heart, a man whom public catastrophes

would not shake, by striking at his existence and his fortune? No one

could have told: all that was known was, that when he returned from

Italy he was a priest.
