Because of the ongoing internal conflict in the nunnery of the Holy Cross in Poitiers, King Childebert and King Guntram asked several important bishops, including Gregory of Tours, from both realms to meet in Poitiers and settle the conflict. In the text of the judgemnt passed on the rebellious nuns, reported by Gregory, the earlier events are recalled, including the mission of the presbyter Theutharius in 589 (see ).
Dehinc ex iussione domnorum principum, cum vir venerabilis Theutharius presbiter in causa directus fuerit et statutum fuisset, quando iudicium fieret, non expectatum tempore.
