Sample text

For serious thirteenth-century teaching grammars in prose we must, however, turn to the more pragmatically oriented Italian universities. Papias had already written his much-used dictionary called the Elementarium as well as an Ars grammatica around 1050, but there are few grammatical texts surviving from Italy between then and the time of the thirteenth-century treatises of Bene of Florence (d. ) and Peter of 12 Hunt, ‘Studies on Priscian, II’, p. 69. 28 The liberal arts and the arts of Latin textuality Isolella (which had an Italian circulation) and, more importantly, those of Hugutio and John Balbus of Genoa (which had a wide European circulation).

V. ‘littera’; the anonymous gloss on Priscian known as Promisimus, in Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Laud Lat. 67, fol. 4, ‘De littera’. 17–19, 32–7; John Balbus, Catholicon, ‘De figuris’, pp. 107–27; Vincent of Beauvais, Speculum doctrinale 2: ‘De grammatica’. 34 The liberal arts and the arts of Latin textuality tropes and figures in the artes results from a synthesis of Aristotelian and Stoic rhetoric and dialectic filtered through the late-classical grammatical schools. As a result, grammatical theory carried over certain philosophical agendas that posed problems for the valuation of poetic language.

In the period of Kilwardby Oxford was rapidly establishing itself as a centre for study, and for a half century he, his predecessor Robert Grosseteste (d. 1253), and his successor Roger Bacon (d. c. 1292), carried through many exciting developments in scientific or speculative grammar, though with very different characteristics. 7 As a group of grammarians, those Oxford scholars deserve further study. Developments in Paris during the period, between about 1220 and 1270, have also received less attention than those which immediately followed them.
