Robert of Melun

Robert Of Melun, an English theologian, was probably born in the latter part of the 11th century. But little is known of his life. Du Boulay supposes that he taught for some time in Paris, and then went to Melun to pursue the same vocation. At any rate, one of his pupils — John of Salisbury — reports that he taught physics in the former city, and afterwards devoted himself to theology. He died Feb. 28,1167. His principal treatise is entitled Summa Theologioe, fragments only of which have been published. It contains very valuable matter on the origin of scholastic theology. One other work is attributed to Robert, Quoestiones de Epistolis Pauli. See Hist. Litter. de la France; Du Boulay, Hist. Univers. Par.
