Saint Anselm Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy Saint Anselm of Canterbury was the outstanding Christian philosopher and theologian of the eleventh century He is best known for the celebrated ontological argument for the existence of God in the Proslogion, but his contributions to philosophical theology and indeed to philosophy generally go well beyond the ontological argument.
