Scholastic philosopher. He taught at the cathedral school in Paris, whence he was driven (1108) by Abelard's ridicule of his exaggerated Realism. He retired to the priory of St-Victor, apparently modified his doctrines, and by his lectures there laid the foundations of the Victorine school. In 1113 he became Bp. of Châlons.
