Who was Adelard, and why has he been forgotten? Adelard was born in Bath in around 1080 AD and was educated by church monks from the Benedictine Monastery.

He was sponsored by Bishop John, who was Bishop of Bath and a very influential figure in the Norman world. Adelard’s search for knowledge took him to Tours in France, then on to Sicily and Antioch (in modern day Turkey). He learnt Arabic and translated many of the great classical works of ancient Greece from Arabic into Latin.

Discover more about a figure credited with helping to kick-start the Renaissance.
