Marsile a Dutch philosopher and theologian, was born at Inghen, in the diocese of Utrecht. He was canon and treasurer of the Church of Saint-Andrew, at Cologne, and when Rupert, the duke of Bavaria, founded the academy of Heidelberg in 1386, he called Marsile to a professorship of philosophy. He died there Aug. 20, 1394. Tritenhemius attributes to him a Dialectic, and some comments on Aristotle and on Peter Lombard. Fabricilus adds that his commentaries on the four books of the Sentences were published in Strasburg in 1501, folio. A volume published at La Haye (1497, fol.) contains the first two books of the Sentences, with the criticism of D'Inghen. — Fabricius, — Bibl. seed. et ifj: Latin.; Dict. des Sciences philos.; B.
