Latin Rhetoric and Education in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, Hardback Book

Latin Rhetoric and Education in the Middle Ages and Renaissance Hardback

Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series


The essays in this volume deal with the history of rhetoric and education for the thousand years from the early Middle Ages to the European Renaissance.

They represent the author's pioneering efforts over four decades to piece together a kind of mosaic which will provide elements necessary to construct a history of that thousand years of language activity.

Some essays deal with individual writers like Giles of Rome, Peter Ramus, Gulielmus Traversanus, or Antonio Nebrija, some focus on the influence of Cicero and Quintilian and other ancient sources.

The essays dealing specifically with education open up different inquiries into the ways language use was promoted, and by whom.

Others explore the relations between Latin rhetoric and medieval English literature and, finally, several deal with the impact of printing, a subject still not completely understood.
