"Honorius (Henricus, Heinricus) Augustodunensis (d. c. 1140)," in Oxford dictionary of national biography, published online, September 23, 2004, accessed April 22, 2019(scholar and author; long believed to have come from Autun in Burgundy, in consequence of the name by which he was generally known in Latin, Honorius Augustodunensis; "However, it is now impossible to associate Honorius with Autun ... Honorius was possibly of south German or Savoyard origin, and arguably a kinsman of Archbishop Anselm of Canterbury (d. 1109). He spent his formative years (c.1096-1110) as a reforming canon in England, many of them in the archbishop's immediate circle ... At, or shortly after, the archbishop's death Honorius left England for Regensburg, in Bavaria. The puzzling name Augustodunensis may be a toponym, derived from his later career (c.1110-1133) as canon scholasticus, or teacher in the school, of the Alte Kapelle in Regensburg"; his most popular work is the "catechetical Elucidarius"; "The name Honorius appears ... to have been adopted, perhaps in honour of Honorius, archbishop of Canterbury (627-52). Honorius's original name was probably He[i]nricus")

Sub quinto Henrico (1106-1125) floruit"; several manuscripts call him "solitarius" or "inclusus"; this information and a list of 22 work titles in "De luminaribus Ecclesiae" are all that is documented about him)
