Notes from the School of William De Montibus / Collecta Ex Diuersis Auditis in Scola Magistri Willelmi
About this item
Preserved in a single manuscript from the abbey library of Bury St Edmunds, and here edited for the first time, Samuel Presbiter's series of short, extensively annotated poems offers a rare record of one of the innovative formats that medieval schoolmasters used to engage students beyond conventional lectures. The text affords the reader a vivid experience of immersion in the pedagogical techniques of the twelfth-century classroom. The poems and commentary present key lessons from the doctrinal instruction of William de Montibus (c. 1140-1213), the beloved master of the school of Lincoln Cathedral.
