Grammont, Antoine Pierre De (1)
Grammont, Antoine Pierre de (1)
a French prelate, was born in 1615. He entered the ministry when quite young. Alexander VII offered him the deanery of the chapter of Besancon, but he declined. Some time later he was consecrated archbishop of that see. When Louis XIV invaded Franche-Comte in 1668, Grammont made every exertion for defence. On the second invasion, six years later, he resigned at the door of his cathedral. and thereafter occupied himself by raising various schools in his diocese. He died May 1, 1698, leaving editions of the missal, of the breviary, of the ritual, and a catechism of his diocese. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
