Alainus (Alanis, Or Halain)

a French monk, was abbot of Farfe in the 8th century. He was born in Aquitaine, whence he passed into Italy. After taking the religious vows at Farfe, he became a hermit, and, retiring to a neighboring mountain, applied himself to copying several works of antiquity. In 761 he was elected abbot of Farfe, and died in 770. His principal work is a Homiliary, a compilation of passages of Scripture. See Rivet, Histoire Lit. de France, V, 5, 10.
