Adelman, Bishop of Brescia
Adelman, Bishop Of Brescia flourished in the 11th century, and was a disciple of Fulbert ( q.v.) and fellow-student of Berenger (q.v.). He was at first clerk of the Church at Liege, and afterwards master of the ecclesiastical school there, probably from 1041 to 1048. In 1047 (probably)'- he addressed a letter to Berenger, endeavoring to reconcile him to the then novel doctrine of transubstantiation. The following year he was made bishop of Brescia, where he died, according to some in 1057, or, according to others, in 1061. The letter to Berenger had the following title, De Veilitate Corporis Christi in Eucharistia, Epistola ad Berengarium (Bibl. Max Patr. xviii, 438). He also wrote Rythmi Alphabetici de Viris Illustribus sui Temporis. SeeCave, Hist. Lit. ii, 134; Mabillon, Vet. Analect. 382; Chalmers, Biog. Dict. s.v.; Darling, Cyclop. Bibliog. s.v.
