Abstract Focusing on the final years of Gregory VII's pontificate (1073-1085), this paper illustrates just how heavily the reforming initiative in Northern France and Burgundy (Gallia) depended upon external papal factors of authority, supervision, and instruction, not to mention lay support in the regions where church councils were being held - features that are commonly overlooked in the existing scholarship of this period, or at the very least taken for granted. Examining Gregory VII's ability to successfully administer to the legatine office, devoting particular attention to his most energetic and active representative in those regions - Bishop Hugh of Die (later archbishop of Lyons) - this paper questions the extent to which the implementation of reform and law in France was tied up with the politics of Rome. Such a focus will inevitably throw further light on the limitations of legatine authority in France during the last quarter of the eleventh century, calling into question the influence that papal supervision played in controlling, and at times, inhibiting Hugh of Die administering and fulfilling his assigned duties.
