Biography of Peter Abelard:

1079 - Peter Abelard was born in the little village of Pallet, about 10 miles east of Nantes, in Brittany, the eldest son of a noble Breton family.  1100 - Abelard went to Paris to study under William of Champeaux at the school of Notre Dame and soon attacked the ultrarealist position of his master with such success that William was forced to modify his teaching.

 1112 - Abelard became master at Notre Dame but, when deprived of his place, set himself up at a school on Mont-Ste-Geneviève, just outside the city walls. Abelard's fame as a dialectician attracted great numbers of students to Paris.

Peter Abelard next turned to theology and attended the lectures of Anselm at Laon. His triumph was complete; the pupil was able to give lectures, without previous training or special study, which were acknowledged superior to those of the master.
