John, Surnamed the Teuton,

Resource Toolbox

from his nationality, abbot of St. Victor, was a native of the diocese of Treves. He studied at Paris, joined the canon regulars of St. Victor, and became their abbot in 1203. He was one of the ablest of the glossatores (q.v.) on canon law, and appears to have exerted great influence in general over the ecclesiastical affairs of his time, and to have been in great favor both with the pope and with the king of France. He died at Paris Nov. 28, 1229. He left thirty-seven sermons, which are preserved among the MSS. of the Imperial Library at Paris. (Two Dominican Monks of like name flourished in the latter half of the 13th and the first half of the 14th century.) See (esaire d'Heisterbah, Illustr. Mirac. et Histoire Memor. lib 6, c., 12;.
