De la Tour was born in Camboulit in 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. 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. De la Tour was made Archbishop of Salerno and then Cardinal of San Vitale in 1320.
He was nicknamed Doctor famosus.
