The Teacher

Show Summary Details


While next to nothing is known about the teaching in the palace school of Charles the Bald, quite a lot is known about the cathedral school at Laon. There the great master was Martin the Irishman. This chapter considers the teaching career of Martin, which can provide an idea of the kind of teaching Eriugena was probably engaged in: for the palace school was a real school where various arts were practised and was so closely related to the cathedral school at Laon.
