Name of several medieval personages.
Cistercian monk, Abbot of Cîteaux (1201), inquisitor and legate (1204), Archbishop of Narbonne (1212); d. 29 September, 1225. For a bibliography of his alleged order to slay indiscriminately both Catholics and Albigenses at the siege of Béziers (1209) see Chevalier, "Repertoire" (bio-Bibl., I, 319). The accusation has been amply refuted by Ph. Tamizey de Larroque, "Revue des quest. hist." (Paris, 1866), I, 179-186.
The second master-architect of the cathedral of Cologne, successor of Meister Gerhard (1295-1301). To him and his son John are owing the upper part of the apse and the completion of the choir. The change from three to five naves is said to have been made by his advice. His strength lay in the thoroughness and precision with which he carried out the details of the great architectonic plan of the cathedral.
Abbot of the Benedictine Monastery of St. Matthias near Trier (c. 1063), author of a treatise on the manner of calculating the Easter festival, made a Latin metrical version of the Book of Proverbs, and a "Cyclus Paschalis".
Born about 1400, in the Ducht of Julich, author of a pilgrim's journey (1496-99) to the holy places and the Orient (ed. Groote, 1860).
(Died 1211-14). A Benedictine abbot, author of an important "Chronica Slavorum" (1172-1209) and advocate of the papal cause in the Hohenstaufen conflict (Michael, Gesch. d. deutsch. Volkes im Mittlalter, III, 374).
German chronicler of the thirteenth century, d. after 1265 (Potthast, Bibl. Hist. Med. Aevi, 2d ed., I, 120).
(Luydius, a Lude). Canon regular, b. at Tongres; d. 1540, at Leyden; dean (1494) of the faculty of arts at Cologne, professor of theology, canon of the cathedral of Cologne, author of a commentary on Juvenal, and of a work "Contra Sacerdotes Concubinarios". He displeased the humanists by his attitude in the Reuehlin conflict, and was made the butt of Hutten's satire (Janssen, Gesch. d. deutschen Volkes., etc., I, 111, 18th ed.; II, 47, 18th ed.).
