Haymo, Haimon, Haimo, or Aimo
Haymo, Haimon, Haimo, or Aimo a theologian of the 9th century, the place of whose birth (about A.D. 778) is uncertain. In his youth he embraced the rule of St. Benedict in the abbey of Fulda; afterwards he studied under Alcuin, at St. Martin of Tours, with Rabanus Maurus. He then appears successively as teacher at Fulda, as abbot of Hirschfeld, in the diocese of Mentz, and finally bishop of Halberstadt (Saxony) in 841. He was present at the Council of Mentz in 847, and died March 23 (or 26), 853. His writings which are chiefly compilations from the fathers, enjoyed great reputation; they consist of, Glossae continues super Psalterium (Colon. 1523, 8vo; 1561, 8vo): — In Cantica Canticorum (Colon. 1519, fol.; Worms, 1631, 8vo, etc.): — Glossae in Isaiam (Colon. and Paris, 1531, 8vo): — Glossae in Jeremiam, Ezechielern, et Danielem (so scarce that some doubt their having been printed at all): — In duodecimo Prophetas minores (Colon. 1519, et al.): — Homiliae super Evangelia totius anni (Colon. 1531; Paris, 1533; Antw.
1559): — In Epistolas S. Pauli (now generally supposed, however, to be by St. Remy of Auxerre): — Super Apocalypsim Explanatio (Colon. and Paris, 1531, 8vo): — De Corpore et Sanguine Christi (D'Achery, Spicilegium, 1, 42): — De varietate librorum tres libri (Paris and Colon. 1531, 8vo): — Breviarium Historiae ecclesiasticae (Colon. 1531, 8vo; often reprinted). Other works have been ascribed to him by Johannes Trithemius, but it is not certain that they were by him, and, at any rate, they are now lost. His writings are collected in Migne, Patrol. Latina, vols. 116, 117, 118. See Lelong, Bibl. Sacra; Trithemius, De eccles. Script.; Hist. litter. de la France, 5, 111-126; Hoefer, Norin. iio. Géneralé. 23, 121; Clarke, Succession of Sac.
