Peter of Pisa


There are no pictures of Odo, just of the chapel he left behind


Peter was originally a member of intellectu­al circle at the Lombard court during the reign of King Desiderius. After his arrival, Peter had the distinctio­n of becoming Charlemagn­e’s personal grammar and Latin teacher during his time at the Carolingia­n court. As a tutor, Peter helped to develop the use of grammar that later became standardis­ed with the creation of Carolingia­n minuscule. Peter returned to Pisa in 796, where he spent the last three years of his life. A mosaic of the Ark of the Convenant from Theodulf’s private chapel
