Blount (Lat. Blundus or Blondus), JOHN, a prominent English theologian of the 13th century, studied at Oxford and Paris, and after his return from France was appointed professor at Oxford, where for the first time he explained the works of Aristotle. He was also elected canon and chancellor of the cathedral church of York, and (in 1232), were it not for the differences then existing between the king of England and the Roman see, he would have been confirmed as archbishop of Canterbury. He died in 1248. He is the author of, Summarium Sacrce Facultatis: — Disceptationes Scholasticce, and of some commentaries.
