Encyclopedia > Saint Fulbert of Chartres

Fulbert of Chartres (d. April 10, 1028), scholar, teacher, and bishop of Chartres (1007-1028). Fulbert was a leading scholar and political figure in northern France in the first decades of the eleventh century. In particular, his opinions on canon law and Roman law were widely respected. His writings, especially his letters, provide an important source for eleventh-century French history. They are edited by Frederick Behrends in The Letters and Poems of Fulbert of Chartres (Oxford 1976). Among his students was Berengar of Tours, whose views on the Eucharist were denounced as heretical. In 1020, the cathedral of Chartres was badly damaged in a fire, and Fulbert rebuilt it, although the extent of his work is unclear.
