It was this Anthony Lulle who collected the synodal statutes of the diocese of Besancon, and published them under the title, Statuta Synodalia Bisosnt. Eccles. Metrop., cum Tractat. Summariis (Lyons, Rouille, 1560). Baume-Montrevel distinguished himself by his zeal against the Calvinists, whom he drove out of his diocese.
