Maille de Breze, Simon de

Resource Toolbox

a French prelate, was born in 1515; became a religious of the order of Citeaux, was made abbot of Loroux, then bishop of Viviers, and in 1554 archbishop of Tours. He was a member of the Council of Trent, and took decided ground against the Reformers, who had given him no little trouble in his archiepiscopal dominions. He was at one time obliged to quit his see, in all probability because the Calvinists had made a strong case of immorality against him. He died Jan. 11,1597. He published a Latin translation of several homilies of St. Basil (Paris, 1558, 4to), and Discours au peuple de Touraine (ibid. 1574, 16mo). Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, 32:878.
