# Questions tagged [gerbes]

"Gerbe" is a construct in homological algebra and topology. They can be seen as a generalization of principal bundles to the setting of 2-categories. "Gerbe" is a French (and archaic English) word that literally means wheat sheaf. Gerbes were introduced by Jean Giraud (Giraud 1971) following ideas of Alexandre Grothendieck as a tool for non-commutative cohomology in degree 2.
