THEOLOGIAN. Little is known of his life except that c. 1115 he entered St. Victor, an Augustinian house of canons in Paris . He wrote on grammar, geometry, and philosophy; the Didascalion, which is a guide to the study of the artes and of theology; Biblical commentaries; a commentary on Pseudo-Dionysius’ Celestial Hierarchy; a treatise on the Sacraments; and works on spirituality. In all these fields he made a distinctive contribution, with no parade of learning or claims to originality.
