In the thirteenth century, universities emerged with a distinctive role in medieval society. They were the descendants of cathedral and monastic schools, where charismatic teachers attracted students from all Christendom. This course aims to study the development of the medieval university as a complex community of students and masters. It will focus on the experiences of students from arrival to graduation, and of masters and their struggle to establish their reputation. The course will also explore the teaching materials used throughout the period.
