Hugo, Archbishop of Lyons
Hugo, archbishop of Lyons was born about the middle of the 11th century, and was one of the most distinguished supporters of the Romish Church, in her efforts to exalt the papacy, during the last half of the 11th century, when Gregory VII and the emperor Henry were arrayed against each other. He was the papal legate (under pope Urban II) at the Council of Autun, A.D. 1094, who pronounced the ban on king Philip of France for the repudiation of his lawful wife Bertha. Hugo died Oct. 7,1106. His only works are his letters, which, according to the Hist. Lit. de la France (9, p. 303), are very valuable to the historian of the 12th century. See Neander, Ch. Hist. 4, 123; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog.
