Brisonnet, Denis, son of the cardinal of St. Malo, was made successively bishop of Toulon and of St. Malo. He was a member of the Council of Pisa, 1511, and of that of the Lateran, 1514. His reputation for virtue and kindness was very great; and toward the end of his life he gave up his episcopal office, for fear that he should not be able faithfully to fulfil its duties in his old age. He died in 1536.-Hoefer, Biog. Generale, 7:378.
