Nicolas of Lyra. Doctor planus et utilis, the
famous exegete, was born at Lyra in Normandy, 1270; and died at Paris,
1340. He is the author of numerous theological works, by far the most
famous of which is his monumental Postillae perpetuae in uniuersam
S. Scripturam, which was so popular that it gained the distinction
of being the first biblical commentary to be printed.
