Adhemar De Monteil

Adhemar De Monteil, bishop OF METZ, was born near the close of the 13th century. He was a native of Languedoc; and was sovereign bishop of Metz from 1327, holding both the sword and the crosier. He was at war with Ralph, duke of Lorraine, when king Philip of Valois intervened, brought the war to an end, and established a treaty of peace. This warrior-prelate then had difficulties with the regent of Lorraine, and with Robert, duke of Bar. He reduced to ashes the castle of Salins, invaded the Barrois, took Conflans, and established justice by force of arms. His warlike tastes obliged him to make loans, and to mortgage large territories and entire villages, such as Neuvilles and Sarrebourg. - He died in 1361, and was interred in the chapel of the bishops which he; had caused to be constructed in the Cathedral of Metz, the main part of which was not finished until 1480.
