Paul Count Huyn as Bishop of Brno

Paul Graf Huyn (Czech: Pavel hrabě Huyn ; born February 17, 1868 in Brno , † October 1, 1946 in Bozen ) was Bishop of Brno and Archbishop of Prague .


Count Paul Huyn was ordained a priest on June 7, 1892 and was nominated as his successor in the diocese of Brno after the elevation of Brno Bishop Francis von Sales Bauer to Archbishop of Olomouc in 1904. The papal confirmation of May 14, 1904, followed on June 26 of the same year the episcopal ordination by Archbishop Bauer and three days later the assumption of office.

On October 4, 1916, he was nominated Archbishop of Prague and enthroned on December 8 of the same year. Because of the effects of the First World War and the associated dissolution of the multi-ethnic state , which resulted in nationalist hostility from parts of the population, he resigned from his office on September 6, 1919. Pope Benedict XV then appointed him titular Archbishop of Serdica (now Sofia) and on June 13, 1921 Assistant to the Papal See and Titular Patriarch of Alexandria .

Because of internal church disputes with the Pope, he was denied the dignity of cardinal in the Curia . Since the 1920s he lived in Gries near Bozen . He died on October 1, 1946 in the Benedictine abbey of Muri-Gries in Bolzano and was buried in the collegiate church.
