Adam, Scotus

Adam, Scotus (also called ADAMUS ANGLICUS), a Prnemonstratensian of the 12th century, was born in Scotland. About the year 1150 he entered the monastery of St. Andrew in Scotland, and in order to become better fitted for asceticism he spent some time at the monastery in Premontre, in the diocese of Laon. Having returned to Scotland, he was made abbot and bishop of Casa Candida (Witherne), in Galloway. The time of his death cannot exactly be given. He wrote, Liber de Ordine, Habitu et Professione Prcemonstratensium (14 sermons): — De Tripartito Tabernaculo (part 3): — De Triplici Genere Contemplationis. These works were printed in 1578. An enlarged edition, containing besides forty-seven sermons and two books, entitled Soliloquia de Instructiobne Ainimae, was published by Godefr. Ghiselbertus, at Antwerp, in 1659. A complete edition of his works is given by Migne, in Patrol. Lat. 118. See Schenid, in Wetzer u. Welte's Kirchenlexikon, s.v. (B.P.)
