Montlaur, Jean De
Montlaur, Jean De a French prelate, was born near Montpellier about 1120; entered the ecclesiastical life while yet quite a youth, and rapidly advanced to positions of prominence and responsibility. In 1158 he was made bishop, and everywhere gained friends by his generous and open-hearted life. He was particularly devoted to his diocesan work, and built up the people in holy and consistent living. He died February 24, 1190, in his native place, with whose history his whole life was interwoven. His works remain in MS. See Histoire litteraire de la France, volume 14, s.v.; Gallia Christiana, volume 6.
