Another example of postmodum in this sense is foundin Metalogicon i.5, p 16: magister Gilebertus, tunc quidem cancellarius Carnotensis et postmodum venerabilis episcopus Pictavorum.
Liebeschütz, p 111; the same phenomenon is found in the Policraticus, see ibid p 112.
So Richard Episcopus is not to be linked with William of Conches locally, as has been done by
Clerval, , Les Ecoles de Chartres au Moyen Age (Chartres
1895) p 182f, and Poole, p 237.
See Liebeschütz, pp 112-3. John may have visited Provins about 1148, see Letters, 1 p xvii and n 1.

Nothing of the kind is found, for instance, in H. C. van Elswijk (see note 2).
It is interesting to notice that Southern, in his response to the discussion aroused by his article (‘Further Reflections on the Schools of Paris and Chartres in the First Half of the Twelfth Century’, lecture at the International Conference on the Renaissance of the Twelfth Century, held at the University of California (Los Angeles) and Harvard University in 1977) does not stick to his opinion. Instead he remarks (note 28) that it seems as if William of Conches had already retired from teaching when John heard him and he asks ‘Why not at Conches?’ See now Renaissance and Renewal in the Twelfth Century (ed. R. L. Benson and G. Constable: Oxford 1982) pp 113-37 at p 129. This idea, based on Metalogicon i.24, pp 57-8, lacks all pro bability, for if William had retired, it is not conceivable that John attended his lectures for three years, as he states explicitly.
