Vigor, Simon

Vigor, Simon a French prelate, was born at Evreux about 1515. He was educated by his father, Renaud, who was physician to Charles IX, Henry III, and Catharine de Medici. In 1540 Simon joined the house: of Navarre, and became rector of the university, and curate of St. Germain de Vieux. In 1545 he was made doctor of theology, and soon after, as penitencier of the Church of Evreux, he accompanied his bishop to the Council of Trent; for his services there he was rewarded with the curacy of St. Paul's at Paris (1565). His zealous preaching against the doctrines of the Reformation finally led to his promotion to the bishopric of Narbonne (1570). He died at Carcassonne, Nov. 1, 1575, leaving several sermons and historical treatises, which are enumerated in Hoefer, Nouv, Biog. Géneralé, s.v.
