AElfric, a learned Saxon writer known as "the Grammarian." About his life little is handed down to us. He flourished at the end of the tenth and beginning of the eleventh centuries, was a pupil of Ethelwold and a friend of Dunstan. He appears to have been occupied in teaching at Winchester first, and afterwards at Cerne in Dorsetshire. His works are numerous, including a Grammar and Glossary in English and Latin, a Colloquium, his Homilies, and treatises on the Old and New Testament.
