Adso of Montier-en-Der ( ) (died 992) was abbot of the Cluniacmarker monastery of Montier-en-Der Abbeymarker in Francemarker, and died on a pilgrimage to Jerusalemmarker; he was one of the foremost European writers of the tenth century.

Born of rich and noble parents, he was educated at Luxeuil Abbeymarker, was called to Toulmarker as instructor of the clergy, and made abbot of Moutier-en-Der in 960. He was the friend of Gerbert, afterwards Pope Sylvester II, of Abbo of Fleury, and other famous men of his time.


His writings include hymns, lives of saints, among them a life of Saint Mansuetus, Bishop of Toul (485-509), a metrical rendering of the second book of the Dialogues of Pope Gregory I, and a tractate De Antichristo or in full Epistola Adsonis ad Gerbergam reginam de ortu et tempore antichristi in the form of a letter to Gerberga of Saxony, wife of Louis IV d'Outremer).

This latter work has been attributed to Rabanus Maurus, Alcuin, and even to St. Augustine, and is quoted by Döllinger among other writings of the medieval conception of Antichrist. It is printed among the works of Alcuin (Patrologia Latina, CI, 1289-93). The other writings of Adso are also found in Migne (Patrologia Latina, CXXXVI, 589-603).
