Gilbert of Westminster
Gilbert Of Westminster a scholar of the first part of the 12th century was first a monk, then abbot of Westminster. He gave himself up to the study of divinity under the guidance of Anselm, archbishop of Canterbury, attained to great knowledge of the Scriptures, studied in France, visited Rome, and on his return is reported to have had a disputation with a learned Jew, which afterwards he reduced to the form of a dialogue, and, publishing it, dedicated it to St. Anselm. He died in 1117, and was buried in Westminster. See Fuller, Worthies of England (ed. Nuttall), 2:424.
