ADAM the Carthusian (fl. 1340) is described as a Carthusian monk and a doctor of theology. A list of his works is given in Tanners's ‘Bibliotheca,’ p. 7; but he is confused with Adam of Eynsham, the author of ‘Life of St. Hugh of Lincoln;’ and another of the works mentioned, the ‘Scala Cæli,’ is attributed to Guigo Carthusianus in the printed editions.
