There are lots of Gislebertus - it is just a medieval way of spelling the very popular name Gilbert.
But when it is spelled this way, it usually refers to the inscription over the adit to Autun Cathedral, France:
Gislebertus Hoc Fecit.
Some people say Gislebertus was the stonecutter, some people say he was the patron; either way Gislebertus was responsible for one of the most magnificent Romanesque cathedrals ever built.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gislebertus
