The pre-eminence of the universities of Paris and Oxford as centres of learning and of literary production has imposed on the study of the history of universities generalised cultural and institutional models derived from these two centres. This collection of studies shows however how in academic practice and literature there existed many variations and differences between various university centres.
Working from a vast re-examination of statutary sources and from analyses of numerous unedited texts, these five papers tackle the problems of the teaching of theology in the schools of the mendicant orders and in the universities, the teaching of the liberal arts and of the meaning of facultas in the Italian context, the program of logic at Bologna, and finally they offer an integral framework for the curriculum and for methods of teaching logic.
