Simon of Faversham (also Simon Favershamensis, Simon de Faverisham, Simon von Faversham, or Simon Anglicus; c.1260–1306) was an English medieval scholastic philosopher and later a university chancellor.[1]

Simon of Faversham was born in Faversham, Kent,[2] and educated at Oxford, receiving a Master of Arts degree. He probably taught in Paris during the 1280s. His philosophical work consists almost entirely of commentaries on Aristotle's works.[citation needed] He was made Chancellor of Oxford University in January 1304 until his death in 1306.[3]
