The Rise of Universities by Charles Homer Haskins

The Rise of Universities by Charles Homer Haskins. This is a quite short publication containing three lectures on the medieval University. This was originally published in 1923. The first lecture discusses the founding of the institutions. The second describes professors and the surprising amount of academic freedom as long as religion was avoided. The last is on students and their behavior. There is a decent amount of information considering the length of the book. There's a short biographical note and an updated bibliography.


Is available through Abebooks.
