Alberic probably a Frenchman, was a Cistercian monk of the Abbey OF TROIS- FONTAINES, diocese of Chalons, and was born near that place early in the 13th century. He is the author, according to some, but in the opinion of others only the interpolator and continuator, of a Chronicle from the Creation to 1241. Leibnitz printed it in his Accessiones Historicme (Leips. 1698, 4to), vol. 2, and Menckenius in Scriptores Rerum Germanicarum et Saxon. (ibid. 1728, fol.), vol 1. The National Library at Paris contains a more complete MS. than has ever been published. Alberic also wrote some poems. See Biog. Univ. 1, 396; Cave, Hist. Lit. 2, 298; Rose, Gen. Biog.
