Gregory was the son Florentius, a senator of Clermont and Armentaria II, neice of Nicetius Bishop of Lyons and granddaughter of Florentinus Senator of Geneva and St. Gregory of Langres. His family had monopolized the bishoprics of Tours, Lyons, and Langres in the late sixth century. When his father died, he came to live with his uncle the bishop of Tours. He was educated there, and eventually was elected by the people to the bishopric himself in 573.


As a bishop there, he had access to the hub of political and economic life in Merovingian France. He knew all the kings, prominent leaders, and ecclesiastics of his time. He used his memoirs to explain his actions and conversations with them.

Gregory was the primary in the trial of Saffaracus, in which his homosexuality was hidden for the good of the church by putting him in a monastery.


Gregory was a well-intentioned man who had the broader political view of protecting his church by hiding its embarrassments from the public.
