Roye, Gui De

Roye, Gui De, a French prelate, was born at Muret about 1345. He was canon of Noyon, and in 1376 was made bishop of Verdun. He never went to his diocese, but remained with Gregory XI, accompanying him to Rome, and afterwards attached himself to Clement VII, by whom he was consecrated. Resigning his see in 1379, he became in succession administrator of the bishopric of Dol, bishop of Castres (1383), archbishop of Tours, archbishop of Sens (1385), and, finally, resigning all these, was on the 22d of June, 1390, consecrated archbishop of Rheims. Gui took the part of Benedict XIII, and was a member of the Council of Paris in 1404, but refused to join the National Council of 1406, which was convened for the extinction of the clerical privileges during the schism. In 1408 he presided over the Provincial Council at Rheims, and the next year set out for Italy, but was killed, during the journey, in a quarrel among his retainers, June 8, 1409. He is the author of a work entitled Doctrinal de la Sapience (Genera, 1478), which passed through several editions. See Gallia Christiana, vol. 9; Brunet, Manuel de Libraire.
