Duns “Doctor Subtilis” Scotus

Franciscan (Grey Friars) monk who was renowned in his day throughout Europe for his skill in classical logic. When his style of metaphysics fell into disrepute, his name became the origin of the word ‘dunce’. He is buried in Cologne (Germany) but this memorial was set up by the Franciscans as Sidney Sussex College stands on the site of a former Francsican monastery. (bio by: David Conway)
