Pierre-Michel-Eugène Vintras (April 7, 1807 - December 7, 1875), also known as Pierre-Michel-Élie, was the French sectarian founder and leader of the Oeuvre de la Miséricorde ("Work of Mercy"). From November 1839 to the end of his life, Vintras avowed himself to be a prophet and the reincarnation of the prophet Elijah who had received revelations from Saint Joseph, the Virgin Mary, and Jesus Christ, including that the Church existed under a new dispensation through the reign of the Holy Spirit, and promoted various doctrines, including such things as free love, that were denounced by the Roman Catholic Church.
