Bertrand Augier de la Tour

Bertrand de Turre (c. 1262–1332), also known as Bertrand de la Tour, was a French Franciscan theologian and Cardinal.[1]

De la Tour was from the old province of Quercy, France. Serving as a provincial minister in Aquitaine from 1312 onwards he became a leading opponent of the Franciscan Spirituals.[1] He undertook diplomatic missions for Pope John XXII with Bernard Gui from 1317-1318. After this time, he was asked to aid in evaluating the heresy of Peter Olivi.[1] De la Tour was made Archbishop of Salerno and then Cardinal of San Vitale in 1320.

After the deposition of Michael of Cesena in 1328, on John XXII's behest de la Tour acted as vicar general of the Franciscan Order.[1]

He was nicknamed Doctor famosus.
