Early lives of Charlemagne, 1922, viewed online 19 March 2020: title page (the Monk of Saint Gall) page xv (the Monk of Saint Gall must remain anonymous, because the attempt to identify him with Notker rests only on the supposition that both stammered; but in the sentence where the Monk describes himself as a stammerer, the author is writing, not speaking; the words are a piece of conventional, metaphorical depreciation)
Wikipedia, 20 March 2020 (Notker the Stammerer (Latin Notcerus Balbulus, c. 840-6 April 912 AD)); he is commonly accepted to be the "Monk of Saint Gall" (Monachus Sangallensis; name given by modern scholars) who wrote Gesta Karoli; born: Heligau or Jonschwil; would seem to have been born at Jonschwil, in what would become (in 1803) canton of Saint Gall in Switzerland; some sources claim Elgg to be place of birth; studied with Tuotilo at Saint Gall's monastic school, taught by Iso of St. Gallen and Irishman Moengall; became monk there; mentioned as librarian in 890 and as master of guests in 892-894; chiefly active as teacher; poet and author: completed Erchanbert's chronicle, arranged a martyrology, composed metrical biography of Saint Gall, and authored other works; formerly considered inventor of the sequence (religious lyric), but now considered doubtful; did introduce the genre into Germany; beatified in 1512; Monk of Saint Gall: known native German-speaker, deriving from Thurgau, close to where Notker is believed to have derived from; Louis Halphen ("Le moine de Saint-Gall," in his Études critiques sur l'histoire de Charlemagne, 1921, ch. 4:139-42) has delineated points of similarity: the Monk claims to be old, toothless and stammerering; and both share similar interests in church music, write with similar idioms, and are fond of quoting Virgil)
