Avito di Vienne fu una figura eminente nella Chiesa delle Occidente tra il V e il VI secolo. Sua sede episcopale di Vienne si trovava nel territorio dei Burgundi, che erano ariani. In genere, la lotta contro le eresie e la preoccupazione per l’unita della Chiesa furono le caratteristiche della sua azione pastorale. A nome dell'episcopato della Gallia assicuró papa Ormisda (515-523) che la Gallia sulla questione con l’Oriente (lo scisma acaciano) avrebbe seguito le sue decisioni, dando ampio riconoscimento del primato della Sede Apostolica.
