Colyngham, Thomas

The ODNB comments that the sources for his existence are not verifiable.

COLYNGHAM, THOMAS (fl. 1387), Cistercian monk, attended the university of Paris, where he proceeded to the degree of doctor, presumably in theology. He was the author of a treatise 'De Eucharistia,' which is stated to have been published at Paris by John Cheyneus in 1592, from a manuscript in the library of the monastery of St. Victor, but of the printed work no copy is known to exist.
