About the Authors
  • Hastings Rashdall (1858–1924) first published The Universities of Europe in the Middle Ages in 1895. It has remained one of the best-known studies of the great medieval universities for over a century. Volume 1 covers the archetypal universities of Salerno, Bologna and Paris with detailed analysis of their origins, constitutions, institutional development and specialised curriculum. Volume 2 Part 1 analyses the origins, constitutions and institutional development of medieval universities in Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, Bohemia, the Low Countries, Hungary and Scotland. Volume 2 Part 2 is a study of England's medieval universities focusing on Oxford and Cambridge, their origins, curriculum, and college systems. Rashdall's study was one of the first comparative works on the subject. Its scope and breadth has ensured its place as a key work of intellectual history, and an indispensable tool for the study of the educational organisation of the Middle Ages.
