Faye, Jean De
Faye, Jean de a French prelate, was born in the second part of the 12th century, of a noble family of Touraine. He was dean at the cathedral church of Tours, when, in 1208, he was called to the metropolitan see of that city by the majority of the suffragan bishops, but with much opposition. He introduced the Minims into the city of Tours. He had great disputes with Maurice, bishop of Mans, whom he suspended from his pastoral functions; and excommunicated Pierre Mauclerc for persecuting Etienne, bishop of Nantes. De Faye died April 23 or 26, 1228. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
