Text: English, Swedish (translation)

Review:

This unusual work, which successfully re-creates and explicates both the thought processes and educational systems of the Middle Ages, is nicely poised between depth and simplification. Translated from Swedish, the text discusses the background periodbetween the Dark Ages and Charlemagne's reforms, the so-called twelfth-century New Learning based on Aristotelian models, the first universities, and scholasticism. Latin terms are usefully highlighted in the margins, and attractive medieval woodcuts illustrate the text.>> (Booklist)
