Adam Parvipontanus Biography
Adam Parvipontanus was born in Balsham, near Cambridge, England. Hence, he is also known as Adam of Balsham. (Also as Adam du Petit-Pont). He studied with Peter Lombard in Paris. Later he taught there and one of his pupils was John of Salisbury. He died in 1181.

Nuchelmans (1973, p. 169) surmises that Adam may have been the first person to introduce the term enuntiabile, which came to be used in the same sense as dictum.
