Description

The study of ancient Roman literature formed the backbone of education wherever Latin was studied in the European Middle Ages. To bolster their understanding of grammar, history, and how moral actions could shape future events, medieval pedagogues turned for inspiration to the classic textbooks handed on from past generations. These two panels discussing “The Latin Classics in the Medieval Classroom” afford participants an opportunity to explore the reception, interpretation, and employment of Greco-Roman literature by medieval societies, and enables dialogue concerning pressing historiographic topics as broad as Late Antiquity, pedagogies in pre-modern contexts, and the relationship between branches of knowledge in medieval education.
