Excerpt from The English Historical Review, Vol. 31: 1916

The history of the connexion between Maurienne and the valley of Susa is a good illustration of the tenacity with which the rulers north or west of the Alps endeavoured to maintain an outlet on the Italian side. And as ecclesiastical and civil boundaries in early times usually coincided, the history of the eastern limits of the diocese of St. John of Maurienne throws light also upon the history of that part of Burgundy which became in course of time the county of Savoy. Its investigation, however, is complicated by the fact that a large number of the documents upon which reliance has been placed are certainly spurious; and no single writer on the subject, so far as I am aware, has been on his guard against all the forged evidence that has accumulated round it. The influence of the fabrications of the church of Vienne has not been finally extirpated; the forged charter of King Boso (887) is still appealed to as an authority;1 and the spuriousness of the diploma of the Emperor Conrad II (1038) has not yet everywhere been recognized.

In Roman times Maurienne and Susa, at the opposite ends of the pass of Mont Cenis, formed a single administrative unit, that of the Cottian Alps; and Susa, the residence of the prefect, was the chief town. When, however, about 574 the Lombards ceded Susa to the Merovingian king Guntchramn, the whole district became Burgundian.
