Lodrone, Paris a German prelate, was born about 1570 at the castle of Lodrone, in the Italian Tyrol. He was the youngest of a nobleman's family, and was destined for the ministry. In 1619 he became princearchbishop of Salzburg. In the midst of the excitement of the Thirty Year's War, he determined to preserve in that country a complete neutrality, and assured to the adherents of both creeds equal protection, which certainly was a singular example at that time. In 1623 he founded the University of Salzburg, which occupied a very distinguished place among all the older ones. After that he commenced the reconstruction of the cathedral, and founded several establishments for the public benefit. Lodrone died at Salzburg in March 1653. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
