Rabanus Maurus

(c. 776–856)
   Archbishop, Theologian and Devotional Writer.
   Rabanus was born in Mainz, Germany. He was educated at Fulda and Tours (under alcuin) and he subsequently became Master of the Fulda monastery school, making it one of the most important in Europe. He became Abbot of Fulda in 822 and Archbishop of Mainz in 847. Among his many works were an important devotional manual for clergy, commentaries on the Scriptures, two penitentials, a martyrology, a study on grammar and a collection of sermons. He was also an important poet and the famous hymn ‘Veni creator’ is often attributed to him. These efforts did much to further the evangelisation of Germany and he was known as the ‘Praeceptor Germaniae’.
