This collection of documentary material illustrates the main themes of educational history from the Middle Ages to the beginning of the nineteenth century. In covering this earlier history, Mr Sylvester's book adds an important perspective to the study of educational development. Full weight is given to the curricula and discipline of the various educational institutions over this period, as well as to the legal and constitutional frameword in which they were founded.


This book was first published in 1970.
