Appointed Bishop of Bath in 1091, John was educated to a high standard in Tours, in Norman France (hence he is often referred to as John of Tours). He was physician to King William Rufus and began construction of the Norman cathedral in Bath. He was also the chief sponsor of Adelard of Bath, whose travels to the Arabic world (where he translated lost works of classical Greece from Arabic into Latin) are credited with helping to launch the European Renaissance.
