Remigius of Auxerre



A Benedictine monk, b. about the middle of the ninth century; d. 908. Remigius, or Remi, was a disciple of the Irish teacher Dunchad of Reims, author of a treatise on astronomy, and of Eric, or Heirich, who was himself a disciple of Eriugena. He taught at the monastery of St-Germain, Auxerre, in Paris, and at Reims. He is the author of a number of glossaries and marginal commentaries on the Bible, on the grammar of Priscian, the "Opuscula Sacra" of Boethius, and the "De Nuptiis etc.", of Martianus Capella. He also wrote a theological treatise, "Ennarationes in Psalmos". As a teacher, Remigius interested himself in the problem of universals, and seems to have attempted a compromise between the extreme Realism of Eriugena and the Anti-Realism of his teacher, Eric. He also investigated the problem of the origin of the universe and gave a Christian interpretation to the passages in which Martianus speaks of the invisible world of ideas. His glosses are of very great interest to the student of medieval Latin philology.
