|Full Name:||Alcuin, 735-804|
Alcuin [Alcuinus] Albinus Flaccus, was born in Yorkshire (and probably at York), c. 735. He received his early education under Egbert, Archbishop of York, to whom he was librarian for some time. Subsequently, in 782, at the request of Charlemagne, he went to France and attained there a position of considerable importance. He died at Tours in 804. His connection with hymnology is slight. His Opera were edited by Du Chesne, and published in Paris in 1617. See "Luminis fons, lux et origo lucis," p. 1667, i.
