Simon d'Authie [Autie]locked

  • Theodore Karp



(b ?1180–90; d Amiens, after 1235). French trouvère. His name appears in documents as canon at Amiens Cathedral from 1223 and as dean of the chapter in 1228. A skilful lawyer, he acted for the abbey of St Vaast, Arras, from 1222 to 1226 in a suit against lay assessors, and again in 1232 in an action involving the projected erection of a reliquary altar by the chapter of Arras Cathedral. Gilles Le Vinier, whose name is also recorded in the documents, is a partner of Simon in the jeu-parti Maistre Simon, d'un esample nouvel, whereas Adam de Givenchi, likewise concerned, is a judge in one of the two jeux-partis (Symon, le quel emploie and Symon, or me faites) between Simon d'Authie and Hue le Maronnier. Of the 11 other works attributable to Simon, six may be the work of other trouvères.
