Gerland (or Garland)

Gerland (or Garland)

a French theologian, was born in Lorraine about 1100. He was invested with acanonship about 1130, and employed as schoolman in the collegiate church of St. Paul at Besancon. He was a very superior scholar for his time, and especially won admiration in discussions. He fell into the heresy of Berenger. From 1148 he disappears from history, and it is supposed that he died about 1150. Dom Rivet (Hist. Lit. 7:156) has confounded this Gerland with another Gerland, bishop of Girgenti. His most important work is, Candela Studii Salutaris, or according to other manuscripts, Candela Evangelica, which under this last title was published at Cologne in 1527. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
