Olivier Maillard (1430-1502), Vicar General of the Franciscan observant of France in 1502, is one of the greatest figures of the Franciscan order at the end of the XV. From Brittany and died in Toulouse, he was a preacher of Louis XI and the Duke of Burgundy. His reputation is mainly based on the preaching he did during the years 1494 and 1508 in the church of Saint-Jean en Greve in Paris and strange liberties he gave it. He seemed never find the word hard enough nor sufficiently vivid expression to his sermons. "Nobody had ever attacked all classes and all social professions more boldly, virulence and tasteless. Each of his sermons is a bitter and outrageous satire, covered with foul language, trivial, and words borrowed from bad places of the lowest "(Hoefer). The style of Olivier Maillard was rated "Macaronic" by Sainte-Beuve in his historical and critical Table of poetry and the French theater in the eighteenth century. See Moreau, chronological inventory Parisian editions of XVIII century. "Brother Olivier Maillard was a preacher of the fifteenth century who acquired much fame pronouncing several Latin sermons mixed with French, in which he declaimed against the vices of the great, the church people and lawyers. "(Brunet III, 1318)
