Both the (old) _Catholic Encyclopedia_ and the Bautz
_Biographisch-Bibliographisches Kirchenlexikon_ (BBKL) consider
Fulbert's nationality a matter of uncertainty.  See their entries for F. at:
http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/06312a.htm
and
http://www.bautz.de/bbkl/f/fulbert_v_c.shtml

So also the Fulbert Millennium Commemoration site which Denis He has
kindly called to our attention.  See:
http://www.fulbert-chartres.org/en/page.php?id_rubrique=5 

Perhaps Phyllis' source is privy to fresh evidence or argumentation
permitting it to assert without qualification that F. was an Italian. 
Does anyone know what this might be?

Best,
John Dillon
