Jean-Baptiste Baudoin

Jean-Baptiste Baudoin (born 11 January, 1831 in Juniville, France; died 15 November, 1875 in Juniville) was a French Catholic priest and missionary in Iceland.

Life

Baudoin and Bernard Bernard (1821-1895) were the first Catholic priests serve in Iceland after the Reformation. They arrived in 1857 (Bernard) and 1858 (Baudoin) respectively, and built a small chapel at the Landakot farmstead near Reykjavík [See Gunnar F. Guðmundsson, "Kaþólskt trúboð á Íslandi 1857-1875", Reykjavík: Sagnfræðistofnun Háskóla Íslands 1987.] . They met with a difficult reception and in 1862 Bernard left the country, while Baudoin persevered until 1875.

Baudoin was occupied with polemics all the time he lived in Iceland (1858-1875). He wrote many articles in newspapers in order to answer criticism against the Catholic Church. In addition to that he wrote several books in Icelandic (see the bibliography below), e.g. a booklet with the title "Jesús Kristr er guð þrátt fyrir mótmæli Magnúsar Eiríkssonar" (1867) ["Jesus Christ is God in spite of the protest of Magnús Eiríksson"] , which was aimed at the book by the Icelandic Theologian Magnús Eiríksson, entitled "Er Johannes-Evangeliet et apostolisk og ægte Evangelium" ["Is the Gospel of John an apostolic and true Gospel"] (1863). [See Eiríksson’s response to it, entitled "Nokkrar athugasemdir um Sannanir “katólsku prestanna í Reykjavík” fyrir guðdómi Jesú Krists", Copenhagen 1868.]
