Bonizo of Sutri was born around 1045, probably in Milan, and was appointed bishop
of Sutri soon after his arrival in Rome in 1074. He was sent to Cremona as papal legate
in 1078. Bonizo sided with Gregory VII during the investiture controversy, and lived
for several years under the protection of Countess Mathilda of Tuscany.
