(nōt`kər băl`byo͝oləs), c.840–912, German monk and scholar, abbot of St. Gall (from 890). He composed liturgical poetry and music. Notker's life of Charlemagne preserves much of the matter of the Charlemagne legend. While Notker was abbot of St. Gall patristic studies were encouraged and the library was enriched.
