Pierre de Maillezais

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pierre de Maillezais[1] was the author of a chronicle history in two volumes of Maillezais Abbey, which was located in present-day Vendée, France.

This author, a Benedictine monk, is otherwise little known in terms of hard facts; the manuscript of the chronicle, shortened Latin title Qualiter fuit constructum Malliacense monasterium is now dated to c. 1060;[2] or c. 1070, and relating to a foundation "myth".[3] He edited a Crusader work Historiae Hierosolymitanae libri IV written by Baldric of Dol.[4] Older works make the author abbot, and place him somewhat later.[5] He is reputed as an admirer of Cicero, founder of a library, and a follower of William IX of Aquitaine on the First Crusade.[6]
