Gain (de Montaignac), Francois DE

a French prelate, was born January 6, 1744, at the chateau of Montaignac. He was at first almoner of the king and grand vicar of Rheims, and in 1782 became bishop of Tarbes. He was strongly opposed to the innovations of the assembly, and retired to Spain in 1790. Nevertheless, in 1791 he came to Tarbes to protest in a public sermon against the new order of things, and to explain his refusal of the oath. The French conquests obliged him to fee to Portugal, and at the time of the concordat he resigned, November 6, 1801. He died near Lisbon in 1806, leaving fifty-seven writings upon ecclesiastical matters. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
