Albert of Gembloux
Albert Of Gembloux (Albertus Gemblacensis), a Benedictine, was born at Loben, near Liege, towards the close of the 10th century. He studied at Paris and at Chartres under the celebrated Fulbert, and became priest of Gembloux, then of St. James, at Liege, where he died in 1048. Sigebert speaks of him as being eminent for his knowledge of civil and religious affairs, as well as for his zeal in religion. He assisted Burkhard, bishop of Worms, his pupil, in the compilation of Magnum Volumen Canonum, and wrote several hymns and lives of saints. Of these the Life of St. Veronus Olbertus (ed. by Galopinus, 1635; and by Henschenius, Acta SS. vol. 3, March 30) is the best known. See Sigebert, De Script. Eccles. c. 142; Cave, Hist.
