Anselm dean of the cathedral church of Laon, flourished at the end of the 11th century. He died July 15, 1117. He illustrated the entire Old and New Testaments with an Interlineary Glossary, compiled from the fathers, which has been several times printed, with the additions of Lyra and others, especially at Antwerp, in 1634; also, the Commentary on St. Matthew, and Explanations of various Passages in the Gospels, Epistles of St. Paul, Apocalypse, etc., which are printed under the name of Anselm of Canterbury, are attributed by many writers to this author. But Dupin asserts that they are from the pen of Herveus, a monk of Bourg, near Dol. — Cave, Hist. Lit. anno 1103;. Dupin, Hist. Eccl. Writers, 2, 364.
