Gui De Puy

Gui De Puy (thirty-first bishop), a French prelate, was born in the first part of the 10th century, being the son of Poulqies the Kind count of Anjou. He took holy orders, and was supplied with various abbeys and benefices. But the Church having interdicted the holding of several offices, Gui surrendered all the other abbeys and gave back again all that he had taken away from the monasteries, holding only the abbey of Carmeri, which, he administered with great regularity and order. He succeeded his brother Drogon in the episcopal see of Puy in 985, and died in 996. Gui left no works, but two pieces, which are of some interest in ecclesiastical history. The first is the manifestation by which he resigned his benefices (in Mabillon, Annales Ord. Bened. 1:47); the second is a diploma, relating to the foundation of the monastery of St. Peter (in the Gallia Christiana, 3). See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
