Bernard (Surnamed Syglerius), Priest Of Monte Cassino

was at first a monk of the monastery of Savigny, in the diocese of Lyons, and became in 1256 chaplain of pope Innocent IV. He was afterwards priest of St. Honoratius, in the isle of Lerins; then in 1263 he was elected priest of Monte Casino, at the desire of Urban IV. His merit secured for him the privilege of accompanying Charles I of Anjou in his journey through Italy. He died in 1282. Among his works we notice Speculum Monachorum (divided into three parts, published at Venice and Cologne in 1520). See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
