4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive survey of the medieval university system, 7 Dec. 2002
This review is from: The Universities of Europe in the Middle Ages - 3 Volumes (Hardcover)
Rashdall's history of the development of medieval universities in Europe is an interesting one. Although the three volumes focus primarily on tracing individual institutions - Bologna and Paris in the first, Oxford and Cambridge in the third - it is also useful as a general survey on how the status of studium generale came about and in what diverse ways it manifested itself, from Italy to Bohemia to Scotland. In many ways these books will only be useful to the serious academic, but it will also hold an appeal to those who are interested in the historical background to modern foundations. From a personal point of view this is particularly true of the Oxbridge volume, where the earliest colleges, some of which are no longer extant, are dutifully recorded and in which there are many surprising facts. It is no tourist guide; but an esoteric read nonetheless.
