Raymond of Magnelonne

Raymond Of Magnelonne a French medieval prelate, flourished near the opening of the 12th century. It is supposed that he was of the family of the nobles of Montpellier. He was bishop from 1129, but not without opposition. Bernard, count of Substantion, finding the choice of Raymond contrary to his views, for revenge, tried to destroy the church of Magnelonne; but the constancy of Raymond triumphed over this opposition, and forced the same Bernard to make public confession of his fault. The name of this bishop is cited in many of the acts mentioned or published by the Gallia Christianna and L'Histoire de Languedoc of M. Vaissette. He died in November, 1159. — Hoefer, Nouv. Biog.
