a French prelate, was born Aug. 7, 1736, at Bois of Sanzay, diocese of Poitiers. He studied at the school of the Jesuits at Fleche, and at the Seminary of St. Sulpice at Paris. He was at first canon and grandvicar of the diocese of Angers, and was appointed, in 1789, archbishop of Vienne. Refusing to sign the civil constitution of the clergy, he left France in 1792, and retired to Annecy and to Rome. In 1797 he returned in the disguise of a peasant and travelled, preaching in the mountains of Vivarais and of Forez. After the compact, he was called, April 9, 1802, to the archiepiscopal see of Bordeaux. He devoted his time and money to works of beneficence, and died at Bordeaux, July 14, 1826. His posthumous letters were published in the Memorial Catholique for May and June, 1827; they were upon Ultramontanism and Gallicanism. He also wrote, Oraison Funebre de Louis X V: - Ecrit sur le Praet a- Interet du Comnmerce (Lyons, 1799). See Hoefer Nouv. Biog. Gendra/le, s.v.,
