From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Daniel of Morley (c. 1140 – c. 1210) was an English scholastic philosopher.

Born in Norfolk, he studied at Oxford and Paris. Disgusted by the limitations of the curriculum in Paris, he then went to Toledo, in search of Arabic translations of Greek philosophy that had become available to medieval scholars after the conquest of Islamic Spain. Whilst there he met the famous translator Gerard of Cremona. Though many scholars traveled to Toledo, Daniel of Morley is one of the few who recorded his travels and thoughts. Upon returning to Oxford, Daniel turned a number of books and treatises over to his patron John of Oxford, Bishop of Norwich, who wished to establish Oxford as a center for the teaching of Greek philosophy.
