Thomas of Bourlémont, Bishop of Toul, 1330-1353

Coats of arms of Toul.

Thomas of Bourlémont was bishop of Toul from 1330-1353.
The Diocese of Toul was a Roman Catholic diocese seated at Toul in present-day France. It existed from 365 until 1824. From 1048 until 1552 (de jure until 1648), it was also a state of the Holy Roman Empire.
The diocese was located at the western edge of the Holy Roman Empire; it was bordered by France, the Duchy of Bar, and the Duchy of Lorraine. It was annexed to France by King Henry II in 1552, and that was recognized by the Holy Roman Empire in the Peace of Westphalia of 1648. It then was part of the province of the Three Bishoprics.
After the Duchy of Lorraine also became part of France in the 18th century, the Diocese of Toul was merged with the Diocese of Nancy into the Diocese of Nancy-Toul.
The Diocese of Toul belonged to the ecclesiastical province of the Archbishop of Trier.
