  Alcuin - LoveToKnow 1911
ALCUIN (ALCHUINE), a celebrated ecclesiastic and man of learning in the 8th century, who liked to be called by the Latin name of Albinus, and at the Academy of the palace took the surname of Flaccus, was born at Eboracum (York) in 735.
In 790 Alcuin returned to his own country, to which he had always been greatly attached, and st syed there some time; but Charlemagne needed him to combat the Adoptianist heresy, which was at that time making great progress in the marches of Spain.
At the council of Frankfort in 794 Alcuin upheld the orthodox doctrine, and obtained the condemnation of the heresiarch Felix of Urgel.

 Alcuin
Alcuin attended the Synod of Frankfort in 794, and took an important part in the framing of the decrees condemning Adoptionism as well as in the efforts made subsequently to effect the submission of the recalcitrant Spanish prelates.
Alcuin was present at this meeting and no doubt took a prominent part in the discussions and in the drawing up of the "Epistola Synodica", although, with characteristic modesty, he furnishes no evidence of the fact in his letters.
Alcuin urged against the Adoptionists the universal testimony of the Fathers, the inconsistencies involved in the doctrine itself, its logical relation to Nestorianism, and the rationalistic spirit which was forever prompting to just such attempted human explanations of the unsearchable mysteries of faith.

The fact is that, very shortly before Alcuin left England for ever, the Scandinavians had begun that desolating series of raids upon this country which ended by exterminating the learning and literature of Northumbria and paralysed intellectual effort all over the land.
As to the revision of the text of the Latin Bible, clear evidence that it was the work of Alcuin is not yet producible; but the probability is very strong that he was at least prominent, if not supreme, in the undertaking.
But, though the tale of Alcuin’s labours is an imposing one, it is the intellectual stimulus which he imparted, and the long line of scholars which owed to him its existence, that forms his true monument.

 Alkuin (or Alcuin, circa 735-804)
Some argue that the Carolingian Renaissance had started a generation before Alcuin's arrival, with Charles' annexation of Northern Italy in 774, and that the Latin of the Italians was far better than that of the Franks or Angles.
At line 1287, however, Alcuin records the death of Bede, and even though he turns to Eddius for some of his material at about the same point, he is constrained, for the final 370 lines of his poem, to be more independent.
The problems that Alcuin emphasizes are ones that reflect a phonetic situation in the meeting of a living Latin-based language with a living Germanic language in Charlemagne's realm, a situation that Bede did not have to face in the England of his age.
