Contents:
The educational landscape of late medieval Regensburg -- Inside the schools -- Regensburg and the universities -- Conclusion.
Summary: Historians have traditionally studied late medieval education backward - through the eyes of religious and political reformers critical of that which preceded them. This has led to significant distortions. Histories written from this perspective, tend to overemphasize the novelty of early modern educational reforms at the expense of evident continuities, and focus on conflict between ecclesiastical and lay authorities rather than cooperation. This book focuses instead, on the medieval experience of education through a detailed reconstruction of the educational landscape of late medieval Regens
