The claim, central to many interpretations of the Renaissance, that humanists introduced a revolution in the classroom is refuted in Robert Black's masterly survey, based on over 500 manuscript school books. He shows that the study of classical texts in schools reached a high point in the twelfth century, followed by a collapse in the thirteenth as universities rose in influence. It was not until the later 1400s that humanism had a significant impact in the schoolroom, as Italian teaching, particularly at elementary levels, remained strongly traditional throughout the fifteenth century.

About the Author:

Robert Black is Reader in Renaissance History at the University of Leeds.

Review:

"This book offers much valuable information about late medieval Italian Latin education....Even if the reader finds some arguments unpersuasive, he can respect the immense amount of manuscript research that has gone into the book, and the author's passionate commitment to understanding a key moment in the history of education and humanism." Renaissance Quarterly

"A major contribution to Renaissance studies...a book that should be read by all scholars and sudents of the period. Every university library should have a copy. It is truly the first comprehensive study of the educational curriculum in medieval and Renaissance Italy, based on many years of manuscript research." History

"The profundity and exactness of Black's understanding, as well as the completeness of his account, are what make the book so interesting. Black has reviewed an astounding number of manuscripts and filled his book with a great amount of valuable information." Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"Based on an impressive array of codicological evidence, this is a major study that will change our views of Italian education in the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance." The Medieval Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Based on the study of over 500 surviving manuscript school books, this comprehensive 2001 study of the curriculum of school education in medieval and Renaissance Italy contains some surprising conclusions. Robert Black's analysis finds that continuity and conservatism, not innovation, characterize medieval and Renaissance teaching. The study of classical texts in medieval Italian schools reached its height in the twelfth century; this was followed by a collapse in the thirteenth century, an effect on school teaching of the growth of university education. This collapse was only gradually reversed in the two centuries that followed: it was not until the later 1400s that humanists began to have a significant impact on education. Scholars of European history, of Renaissance studies, and of the history of education will find that this deeply researched and broad-ranging book challenges much inherited wisdom about education, humanism and the history of ideas.
