Claude Cayx-Dumas (1724-1792) was one of the Jesuits who were killed when the French Revolution turned into a rabid anti-Catholic persecution. Father Cayx-Dumas became a Jesuit in 1744 at Toulouse and taught at Clermont College and in Carcassonne. When the Society was suppressed, he devoted himself to apostolic works for 25 years. He was in retirement outside of Paris when he was arrested and taken to the Carmelite monastery.
