Sorbin, De Sainte-foi, Arnaud

Sorbin, De Sainte-Foi, Arnaud, a French prelate, was born at Montech-en-Querci, July 14, 1537. From a child he possessed an insatiable thirst for knowledge, which he pursued at Toulouse, where he finally became doctor of theology; and in 1557 he obtained the neighboring curacy of Sainte-Foi de Peyrolieres. At the invitation of the archbishop of Auch he preached in the churches of Toulouse, Narbonne, Lyons, and Paris; and in 1567 became court preacher of Catherine de Medicis. He spent a laborious life in public labors, controversies, and historical writings (a list of which is given in Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.), and died at Nevers, March 1, 1606.
