Chapter Summary

The author discusses two studies related to the general methodology of research into medieval universities. The first concerns the absolute and relative strength, in terms of numbers, of the four nations represented at Prague University before the Kuttenberg Decree. The second verifies estimates of the extent of the secession in May, 1409. This study, notable for its time, nipped in the bud any possible attempts to vindicate the Kuttenberg Decree by citing the rights of the Bohemian majority. She made a distinction between clear and debatable cases, including in the former category those who could be with great probability to have studied in Prague. The author concludes that only two of the 12 bachelors described as being of the Meissen nation during the 1409 winter semester were proved also to have been in Prague.
