Abstract

The history of medieval learning has been studied both as a vertical master-student phenomenon, and as part of a broad 'educational environment'. This volume centers on the ways in which cohabiting peers learned and taught one another in a dialectical process - how they acquired knowledge and skills, but also how they developed concepts, beliefs, and adapted their behavior to suit the group: everything that could mold a person into an efficient member of the community. This process of 'horizontal learning' emerges as an important aspect of the medieval learning experience.

Abstract

By the early ninth century, taking responsibility for aseriesof social, religious and political transformations had becomean integral part of running the Carolingian empire. This booktakes a fresh look at these transformations during theoptimistic first decades of the ninth century. Extrapolatingfrom a series of detailed case studies rather than presentinga new grand narrative, it offers new interpretations ofcontemporary theories of personal improvement andinstitutional reforms, and shows the self-awareness of its main instigators as they pondered what it meant to be agood Christian in a good Christian empire.
