Hautpoul, Paul Louis Joseph
Hautpoul, Paul Louis Joseph a French prelate, was born at the castle of Salette (Languedoc), August 2, 1764. He entered into holy orders while quite young, became a priest before the time of the Revolution; and was forced to seek shelter in foreign countries. He at first emigrated to Switzerland, and afterwards to Coblentz in 1792. The family Kosen Kaski engaged him for the education of their heir, upon which abbe Hautpoul directed all his attention. He returned to France in 1818, and became almoner to the duchess of Angouleme, and after that bishop of Cahors in 1828. Being weakened by age and infirmities, he had to resign in 1842, and retired to his family at Toulouse. He died in December 1849. See Hoefer, Noutv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
