Chapter Summary

Before the mid-14th century neither Prague nor the Bohemian kingdom as a whole had higher Latin school with enough graduate teachers to create the core for a faculty of arts. The right to issue its own statutes was one of the fundamental privileges of a university corporation. The former Vicar General Ernest of Pardubice most probably applied his experience at an early stage in the statutory and organisational grounding of the Faculty of Arts. As late as May 1389, lectures on this work by Aristotle had not been forbidden on holidays (as were all other lectures on required books), so the place of Metaphysica in the older curriculum of the so-called master's books is not entirely certain. The primary responsibility of the leader of the quodlibet was to inform, in writing, all the masters of their question three or four days before the beginning of the annual disputation.
