Sully, Maurice De
Sully, Maurice de a French prelate, was born at Sully-sur-Loire, about the middle of the 12th century, of obscure parentage. Having acquired an education through charity, he taught letters and theology in Paris, and was at length made canon of the Cathedral of Bourges, and eventually of that of Paris, to the bishopric of which he finally attained by some means.
