Pie, Louis Francois Desire Edouard

Pie, Louis Francois Desire Edouard a French prelate, was born at Pontgouin (Eure-et-Loir) in 1815. For some time vicar-general of Chartres, he was appointed in 1849 bishop of Poitiers, and made himself conspicuous by his zeal in defending the temporal power of the pope. He opposed the imperial government in a series of pastoral letters, and assembled, in January 1868, a provincial council at Poitiers to discuss the religious interests of his diocese and of France. From the very beginning of the ecumenical council in 1870 he was one of the most ardent defenders of papal infallibility. Pie was made cardinal in 1879, and died at Angouleme in 1880. He published, Instruction Synodale sur les Erreurs de lat Philosophie Moderne (1855): — Instruction sur les Principales Erreurs des Temps Present (1854): — Discours Prononce a l'Occasions du Service Solennel pour les Solduts de l'Armae Pontificale (1860).
