Rohan, Armand Jules De

Rohan, Armand Jules de, archbishop of Rheims, was born at Paris, Feb. 10, 1695. At an early age he entered the chapter of Strasburg, received in 1715 the abbey of Gard, and in 1730 that of Gorze. As the colnclavist of cardinal Rohan, he assisted in the election of Innocent XIII, and was afterwards made bishop of Rheims (May 22, 1722). He was very active in favor of the bull Uneigenitus. After consecrating Louis XV, he took a seat in Parliament as the first ecclesiastical peer, and gradually gave over the care of his diocese to vicars under the title of bishops in partibus. He died at Saverne Aug. 28, 1762. He published Breviarium Remense (Charleville, 1759).
