Amulo Lugdunensis served as Archbishop of Lyon from 841 to 852 AD. As a Gallic prelate, Amulo is best known for his letters concerning two major themes: Christian–Jewish relations in the Frankish kingdom and the Carolingian controversy over predestination, he was ordained as archbishop in January 841. Amulo inherited many of his ideas. Amulo collaborated with both Remigius of Lyon, who succeeded him, Florus of Lyon who served as scribe for Amulo, he worked with Hincmar Archbishop of Reims regarding anti-Jewish policies and the debate with Gottschalk of Orbais over predestination. Like his predecessor, Amulo was unable to bring about anti-Jewish policies into the Carolingian Empire. However, he pursued "a policy of coercion against pro-Jewish Christians," within his diocese, his sermons were imbued with anti-Jewish teachings, his work was influential during the mid-ninth century – most notably his Contra Judaeos and his involvement in the Council of Paris-Meaux in 845. These decrees were not ratified by Charles the Bald, since his magnates saw them as interfering with the traditional Carolingian policies regarding Jews.

Both Amulo and his predecessor were instrumental in spreading anti-Jewish attitudes in the Carolingean court, which sparked changes in "both exegesis and canon law." Carolingian theologians and scholars were influenced by Jewish texts during the ninth century. Figures such as Rabanus Maurus, Angelomus of Luxeuil, Claudius of Turin and Theodulf of Orléans demonstrate a thorough knowledge of Jewish teachings, but this generated an anti-Jewish reaction. Several contemporaries of Amulo – including Rabanus and Angelomus – held the traditional view of Jews as a people who refused to accept Christ due to their blindness. Knowledge of Hebrew and Greek was uncommon. Amulo was an exception to this rule: he had at least a working knowledge of Hebrew, his complex theological arguments affirm his knowledge of Hebrew scripture and Jewish scholarship. Most of Amulo's works directly refer to the Church Fathers, including Saint Augustine and Gregory the Great, he wrote on issues concerning Jewish mysticism and Halakha which were not known to the patristic authors.

These works were quoted to support polemical arguments. Amulo demonstrates his knowledge of Jewish texts to strengthen his position, it is clear from his writings. Both Amulo and Agobard strove to counter Jewish influence in Francia, worked to convince Christians that they ought to limit their interaction with the Jewish population of Lyon. In both Agobard and Amulo's works, they express concern that Christians preferred to attend Jewish services rather than those of their own priests. Amulo objected to Jewish scholars Josephus and Philo in 844–845, his writings were echoed by both Angelomus and Rabanus Maurus. There was concern that close “friendly” contact between Jews and Christians in Lyon would lead to a widespread conversion to Judaism within their diocese. Amulo was included among many prelates working to oppose Gottschalk of Orbais and his teachings of two-fold predestination. By 864, Gottschalk had settled in Friuli under the patronage of Eberhard and was covertly spreading his doctrine in Italy and Noricum.

He had followers in Saxony, in the Balkan regions. From the writings of Rabanus, it is clear that Gottschalk had gained sufficient popularity to pose a theological threat to the Church – and not in the Carolingian heartlands of Francia. Gottschalk challenged both the doctrine of the Church, he was raised in a monastery at Fulda, a focus for missionaries in Germany and central to Louis the Pious' vision of a "Christian" empire. As a monk, Gottschalk twice defied the Order of Saint Benedict: first, in 849 at a council at Mainz, he nearly succeeded in freeing himself from monkhood, when by rule he was born to serve from pueritia for life. Rabanus sought to ensure that Gottschalk did not set a precedent for other monks, called a second council at the Diet of Worms in 829. Consequentially, Gottschalk was again "forced to take the monastic vows."Second, Gottschalk defied the Benedictine law of stabilitas loci, by leaving his monastic duties for southwest Italy. His motivations were political. Gottschalk was a disciple of Ebbo, Archbishop of Reims, this connection became controversial.

Ebbo sided with Lothair I against Louis during the civil war of 833, was deposed when Louis returned to power. Ebbo spent the remainder of his life attempting to replace Hincmar. Around 833–835 Gottschalk was relocated to Orbais. Rigbold of Rheims served as archbishop before Hincmar was appointed, from 835–845. Rigbold ordained Gottschalk as a missionary without the consent of bishop Rothad of Soissons, where Orbais was located. Gottschalk's ordination disrupted social order.
