What is New in the New Universities. Learning in Central Europe in the Late Middle Ages (1348-1500)ed. Elżbieta Jung
Dział: historia średniowiecza
Developments in university education in the late Middle Ages were catalysts for intellectual and social change, accelerating the arrival and diffusion of scientific and cultural trends that had a European and then global impact that can be observed to this day. In September 2011, the XVIIIth Internationale Annual Colloquium of the Société Internationale pour l’Étude de la Philosophie Médiévale was hosted at the University of Łódź to highlight the particular characteristics of Central European universities at that time. The colloquium provided an extraordinary opportunity to present the current work of leading researchers in international scholarship. The resulting collection of essays, presented during the Colloquium, deals with a wide array of topics, organized into three sections: history, philosophy and theology.
