This is the first complete translation into English of Hugh of Saint Victor's Didascalicon. Composed in the late 1130s, the Didascalicon selects and defines all of the important areas of knowledge, demonstrating that not only are these areas essentially integrated, but that in their integrity they are necessary for the attainment of human perfection and divine destiny.
This treatise, produced in the early years of the twelth-century Renaissance by one of its most important theologians and educators, offers a vision of human knowledge as an integrated whole person. It is a crucial text for those in the Middle Ages, in the history of schools and pegagogy, and in the survival of the classical tradition in the West.
