French Catholic bishop.

He served initially as auxiliary to Cardinal Marty of Paris. On the appointment of Cardinal Lustiger, he was rapidly appointed to the see of Le Mans (1981). From 1996 to 2004 he served as Archbishop of Sens-Auxerre (the see lost its metropolitan functions in 2002) and simultaneously as Prelate to the Mission de France (Pontigny).

Monseigneur Gilson is strongly influenced by the work of the Second Vatican Council and is broadly considered as liberal. He has written considerably on Newman.
