Who was Cæsar Clement?

Cæsar Clement was a Catholic recusant.

The great-nephew of Sir Thomas More's friend, Dr. John Clement. He was a student at Douai when in 1578 the college was removed to Reims, but was shortly sent to the English College, Rome, being admitted 5 September 1579. He was ordained priest in 1585, but remained in Rome till Oct., 1587. He took the degree of Doctor of Theology in Italy, probably in Rome itself. Though originally destined for the English mission, he never went to England, but held the important positions of Dean of St. Gudule's, Brussels, and Vicar general of the King of Spain's army in Flanders. He was a generous benefactor to all English exiles, especially the Augustinian Canonesses of Louvain. In 1612 he, with the Rev. Robert Chambers, was commissioned from Rome to make a visit to Douai College so as to put an end to the dissatisfaction with the administration there.
