Bezons Armand Bazin De
Bezons Armand Bazin De a French prelate, son of Claude Bazin, became in 1685 bishop of Aire; in 1698 archbishop of Bordeaux, and in 1719 of Rouen. He was deputy of the province of Bordeaux at the assemblies of the clergy in 1705, 1707, 1710, 1711, and 1715. His great knowledge of ecclesiastical affairs caused him to be made a member of the Council of Conscience, which was established Sept. 1715, after the death of Louis XIV. He was admitted to the Council of Regency, and charged with the direction of the stewardships. Severe reproach is due this prelate for having permitted the infamous Dubois to be ordained in his diocese. He died Oct. 8, 1721, leaving, Ordonnances, Syinodales du Diocese de Bordeaux (Bordeaux, 1704): — Proces-verbal de l'Assemblee du Clerge tenue en 1685 a Saint-Germain-en-Laye (Paris, 1690).
