Corbeil (Lat Corbelius), Pierre De
Corbeil (Lat. Corbelius), Pierre De a French theologian of the 13th century, was at first canon and doctor at Paris, then bishop of Cambray, and finally archbishop of Sens in 1200. While he taught theology at Paris he had for pupil Innocent III, who, on rising to the papacy, favored his former master, and confided to him important missions. Rigord, Alberic, Vincent of Beauvais, Trithemius, and Henry de Gand all eulogize Corbeil. He died June 3, 1222. Only fragments of his synodal ordinances remain. At the National Library of Paris there is a MS. entitled Petri de Corbellio Satyra Adversus eos qui Uxares Ducunt, which is perhaps his. He also wrote some Scriptural comments, still in MS.
