High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Ramon Llull (1232 June 29, 1315) (anglicised Raymond Lully, Raymond Lull, in Latin Raimundus or Raymundus Lullus or Lullius, in Spanish Raimundo Lulio) was a Majorcan writer and philosopher. He wrote the first major work of Catalan literature. Recently surfaced manuscripts show him to have anticipated by several centuries prominent work on elections theory. He is sometimes considered a pioneer of computation theory, especially given his influence on Gottfried Leibniz. Llull is well known also as a glossator of Roman Law. Llull was born into a wealthy family in Palma, the capital of the new Kingdom of Majorca founded by James I to integrate politically the recently conquered territories of the Balearic Islands (nowadays part of Spain) in the Crown of Aragon. He was well educated, and became the tutor of James II of Aragon. He was conversant in Latin, Catalan, Occitan (both the same language at the time and considered "popular Latin") and Arabic.
