Adam von Bremen


Died after 1081. North German chronicler. He was a protégé of Archbishop Adalbert of Bremen. His work Actions of the Bishops of Hamburg Church (about 1075, in four books, in Latin) is a valuable source on the history, life, culture, and geography of the Scandinavians and western Slavs and also on the history of Slavic-German relations.
