Brune, Etienne a Reformation martyr, was a husbandman at Rutiers, in France. He was persecuted by Gasper Augerius and by Domicellus, a Franciscan. He was burned at Planuoll in 1540. It is said that the wind rose and blew the fire so from him, as he stood exhorting the people. that he continued speaking for an hour unharmed, and they were obliged to build a new fire. But this did not burn him, so they seized a staff and thrust it through his entrails, and took his body and threw it down upon the coals, where it burned to ashes. See Fox, Acts and Monuments, 4:398.
