Anselm (4)

Anselm canon and theologist of the Church of St. Lambert AT LIEGE, and afterwards dean of Namur, lived about the year 1049. The bishop Vazon became interested in him on account of his eminent merit, and his successor went with Anselm on a pilgrimage to Rome. He died, it is supposed, about 1056. He prepared Histoire des Eveques de Liege, commenced by the canon Alexander, and continued by Anselm from about 1050 to 1056. The work is composed of two parts — the first containing a history of the first twenty-seven bishops of Liege; and the second the bishops down to Vazon inclusive. This second part is found in Martine, from an ancient MS., more than six centuries old, found in the Abbey of St.

Hubert, which belonged to M. de Crassier. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
