Report No. a496

Simon de Apulia

fl. 1190–1223/24


Alternative Names

Simon of Apulia



An English master of canon law, dean and chancellor of York (1190–1213), and later bishop of Exeter (1213–1224). It is possible that he wrote a canonistic Summa, since a ‘Summa magistri Symonis de Apuleya’ appears in the fourteenth-century book-inventory of Lanthony Priory (Gloucestershire). The work, however, seems to be lost.
