ions essentially new in the history of education, and the models for all universities which have since been established.

3. Between the latter part of the twelfth century and 1500 A.D. at least seventy-nine universities were established in western Europe. There may have been others of which no trace remains. Several of them were short-lived, some lasting but a few years; ten disappeared before 1500. Since that date twenty others have become extinct.

This book is about education in the Middle Ages. The period covered in this book is from the 12th century till the early 16th century.

The author gives special attention to university studies and university excercises. There are chapters on:
-teachers and students of the 12th century (like Abelard and John of Salisbury),
-on new methods and new studies (like Aristotle, Roman Law and Medicine),
-University Priviliges (Protection by the Sovereign, Right of Trial, and more),
-Universities founded by Civil or Ecclesiastical Powers,
-University Excercises,
-Requirements for the Degrees in Arts (in Paris, Leipzig and Oxford),
-Academic Letters.

The author, Arthur O. Norton, was Assistent Professor of the History and Art of Teaching in Harvard University at the time he wrote this.

I do recommend this book to anyone who's interested in Mediaeval History or in the History of Education or Universities.
