BLACATER, ADAM (fl. 1319), was descended from a family of good position in Scotland, and after studying at several universities on the continent became successively professor of philosophy at Cracow in Poland, professor of the same subject at Bologna, and rector of one of the colleges of the university of Paris. He wrote ‘Dissertatio pro Alexandro M. contra T. Livii locum ex decade i. lib, ix.,’ which was published at Lyons.
