Cesar De Bus, a French priest, born at Ca-vaillon, Feb. 3, 1544, died in Avignon, April 15, 1607. In youth he led a gay life in the camp and at court, but took orders in 1574, and in 1592 founded at De l'lsle (Vaucluse) the first establishment of the religious order of the doctrine chretienne or doctrinaires. At the outbreak of the revolution there were 150 of their establishments in France. The order was restored in 1850 at Cavaillon, with an establishment at Marseilles, and another has since been founded in Paris. De Bus founded in 1589 the filler de la doctrine chretienne, a similar institution for women, which does not appear to have been restored. He became blind near the close of his life. His principal work is Instructions (5 vols., Paris, 1666).

Cestus ((Jr. embroidered), with the ancients, a band or tie of any kind, particularly applied to the embroidered zone or girdle of Venus, famed for its power of awakening love. By this according to Homer. Venus captivated Mars, and Juno borrowed it in order to win the affections of Jupiter. The Romans applied the term also to the thongs or bands of leather tied around the hands of a class of boxers, from them called cestuarii. The Greeks used different kinds of cestus under different names. The cestus of the Roman boxers was often loaded with lead or iron, and the word in this sense is supposed by some to be a modified form of ccestus, and derived from ccedor, to kill.
