Robert Grosseteste (before c.1168-1253) made an outstanding contribution to
the thought and the culture of his time. The generation which witnessed the
chartering of the universities of Paris and Oxford (in 1200 and 1214
respectively) was full of a sense of vigorous scholastic renewal and
intellectual innovation. Grosseteste made a distinctive contribution to the
University of Oxford, the earliest years of which (1214-1235) he may fairly be said to have dominated, intellectually speaking. His life was full of
initiatives of the most varied kind, which, when we take them all together,
can be seen to have resulted in an exceptionally diversified output of
writing: philosophical and scientific treatises, commentaries on Aristotle,
biblical exegesis and theological reflection, letters, and not the least in
importance, translations from the Greek. During his years as Bishop of
Lincoln, from 1235 up to his death in 1253, he continued to pursue his
translating activities, while adding considerably to his output of sermons
and pastoral writings, and framing an influential set of constitutions for
the diocese of Lincoln.
