Biography/Description

Arnoldus was born in Rotterdam. He studied liberal arts in Vienna, and canon law in Bologna and Padua. Around 1407 he joined the regular canons of the Windesheim monastery at Groenendaal near Brussels. He composed around 30 works, among which the Gnotosolitos parvus, which text has been preserved in a single manuscript. Gheyloven wrote this text for students, preparing themselves for the priesthood in a paedagogium at Louvain or with the Brethren of the Common Life in Deventer.
