Pierre Henri Dorie (1839-1866), of the Paris Foreign Missions Society, was martyred in Korea in 1866.

Pierre Henri Dorie (1839–1866) was a French missionary of the Paris Foreign Missions Society, who was martyred in Korea in 1866.[1] His feast day is March 7,[2] and he is also venerated along with the rest of the 103 Korean martyrs on September 20.


Henri Dorie was born on 23 September 1839 in Saint-Hilaire-de-Talmont .

Following the arrest and execution of Bishop Siméon-François Berneux on 7 March 1866, all but three of the French missionaries in Korea were also captured and executed: among them were Bishop Antoine Daveluy, Father Just de Bretenières, Father Louis Beaulieu, Father Dorie, Father Pierre Aumaître, Father Martin-Luc Huin, all of them members of the Paris Foreign Missions Society.

The persecutions triggered the French Campaign against Korea in October–November 1866.

Like the other martyrs, Pierre Henri Dorie was canonized by Pope John Paul II on 6 May 1984 under the name Peter Henricus Dorie.[3]
