Hugo De Fouilloi
Hugo de Fouilloi a distinguished French theologian, canon of St. Augustine, was born in the early part of the 12th century. In 1149 he was chosen abbé by the regular canons of St. Denis of Rheims, but he declined this high office. On the decease of the person selected in his stead in 1153, however, he consented to accept the honor. He abdicated in 1174, and his death is supposed to have occurred shortly after. He is said to be the author of a number of works, but as they were not written under his own name, and as some were even printed as the productions of others, it is difficult now to determine them. He is generally believed to be the author of De Claustro Animce, a work often attributed to Hugo St. Victor — De Arca Noe mystica Descriptio — De Arca Noe moralis interpretatio — De vanitate rerum mundanarum, etc. — Oudin, Script.
