Jacques Joseph Duguet is a theologian and moralist French, born in Montbrison the December 4, 1649. Died in Paris on October 25, 1733.

Jacques Joseph Duguet entered in 1667 in the Congregation of the Oratory. Ordained in 1677, he was first professor of theology at St. Magloire seminary and then away to Strasbourg in 1682 because of his opinions Jansenists. He refuses to sign the form and leaves the Oratory in 1685.

He then went secretly to Brussels nearly Antoine Arnauld and Pasquier Quesnel. In 1690, returned to public life, he distanced himself from the more extreme Jansenists. From 1712, he wrote on the issue of the conversion of Jews to Christianity, which would be the prophetic sign of the coming redemption of the Church. It is a theme that we find in Figurists the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Retired in Savoy, there wrote an Institution of a prince, political treaty for the heir Duke, which was not published until after his death in 1739. Hostile to the Ecclesiastical News and convulsions, he continued its distance from the most extreme forms of Jansenism.

In 1764, was published The Spirit of Duguet or Summary of Christian morality.
