Walter of St.-Victor
The prior of the monastery of St.-Victor in Paris, Walter (d. c. 1180) was anti-intellectual and opposed the use of dialectic in theology. His best-known work, Contra quatuor labrinthos franciae (Against the Four Mazes of France), attacks Peter Abelard, Peter Lombard, Peter of Poitiers, and Gilbert de la Porée. Controversial in the XII Century, it did little to stem the rise of scholasticism.
