Dutch Students at Italian Universities and Their Role in the Netherlands' Society (1426-1575)
The iter italicum, the peregrinatio academica to prestigious Italian universities, holds a special place in the history of late-medieval universities. Students from all over Europe flocked to the studia on the peninsula, including several well-known - but how many more unknown? – scholars and humanists from the Northern Netherlands. Nevertheless, this group of adventurous students has not yet been honoured with a monograph.
This volume fills that gap. It provides the first comprehensive analysis of the nature of the iter italicum from the Northern Netherlands in the late-medieval period. Through a systematic investigation of the academic activities, background, and careers of 640 – many hitherto unknown - students, the author unravels the character of the iter italicum and its place in, and contribution to, society and culture in this transitional period for the Low Countries.

Essays in Honour of Hilde de Ridder-Symoens
This volume contains a series of articles - both reviews and case studies - dealing with a range of topics related to the history of education and learning in the Netherlands during a crucial period of transition. Schooling saw enormous progress, both in terms of numbers of people participating in it on various levels and of increasing diversity of institutions providing education. In the same period, learning and education penetrated deeply into society; they fulfilled a steadily growing number of functions, enhancing the competence of officials and contributing to the accumulation of intellectual and symbolic capital by both individuals and groups. A third major development was the change of discourse which was brought about by the advent of humanism in both Latin and vernacular culture.
