Albert Bishop of Freising (En)

Albert Bishop Of Freising (en), came of an Alsacian family of Hohenburg. He was first chaplain of pope Clement VI, who resided at that time at Avignon, and who, in 1345, appointed him to the bishopric of Wurzburg, contrary to the wishes of the chapter. This occasioned trouble between the pope and the emperor, which was settled by the appointment of Albert to the bishopric of Freising. He died in 1359. He is supposed to have written the lives of the martyrs St. Kilian, bishop of Wirzburg, and his companions St. Colman and St. Totman, in the Acta Sanctorum. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
