Herveus of Maine

Herveus Of Maine entered, about the year 1100, the Benedictine monastery at Bourg-Dieu, in Berry, and spent there about fifty years. He devoted himself entirely to the study of the Bible and fathers of the Church, and wrote commentaries, of which those on Isaiah and the Epistles of Paul have been printed (the former in 1721 and the latter in 1544, among the works of Anselm). Both are found in Migne, Patr. Lat. volume 181. Hervmus belongs to those pious theologians of the early period of the Middle Ages, in whom Christianity had become a living reality, but who, fettered by the traditions of the Church, could not rid himself of the latter. See Chemnitz, Examen Conc. Trid., de Justificatione, art. 7, § 2; Loci Theologici, de Justificatione, cap. I, § 4; Frank, Die Theologie der Konkordienformel, 2:54 sq.; Plitt-Herzog, Real-Encyklop. s.v. (B.P.)
