Hugh of St. Victor

Hugh of St. Victor was born in c. 1096. He was one of the formative scholars of 12th century western Europe and was sometimes coupled with Peter Abelard as one of the "two lights of the Latins in France". Hugh was a member of the community of the Canons Regular of Saint Victor (or the Victorines[?]) in Paris from c. 1115, and from 1120, its leading master.

He wrote on philosophy, theology, scripture, and mystical subjects, and was the premiere interpreter of the work of Saint Augustine in the 12th century.

He died in 1141
