St. Anselm of Canterbury
Generally considered one of the most significant philosophers of the Middle Ages and the founder of Scholasticism, Anselm focused on ontological proofs for the existence of God from reason alone.
When Anselm was Abbot of Bec, Normandy, the monastery became a center of learning, and theological ideas were explored and questioned there. As Archbishop of Canterbury, England, he came into conflict with King William II and King Henry I.
