ALEXANDER of Canterbury (fl. 1120?), a monk of Christ Church, Canterbury, is known as the author of a work, ‘Dicta Anselmi archiepiscopi,’ which has been also ascribed to Eadmer. He was employed as a messenger from the Countess Matilda to St. Anselm, and was sent by St. Anselm to Pope Paschal II for his instruction on various points.
