Birth: 1790, France
Death: Jan. 30, 1870, Vatican City

Roman Catholic Bishop. Ordained a priest on April 29, 1821, he is known as the high prelate of the diocese of Tarbes who, after an episcopal investigation lasted more than three years, on the January 16, 1862 through a Pastoral Letter, has officially recognized the authenticity of the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Lourdes. The letter concluded, "We believe that Mary Immaculate, Mother of God is really appeared to Bernadette Soubirous on February 11, 1858, and the following days, 18 times in the grotto of Massabielle". The realization of the Basilica and Sanctuary of Lourdes are the result of his commitment and his work. He passed away in Rome during the proceedings of the First Vatican Council.
