Chapter Summary

This chapter describes about pre-university education, and the focus of this study is Florence and Florentine Tuscany from the mid-thirteenth to the end of the fifteenth century. The term Florentine Tuscany is used to refer to what would become the Florentine subject territories in the fifteenth century. The chapter ends with a comparison of the curriculum in the city of Florence and the Florentine subject towns. The evidence points, perhaps surprisingly, to the slow progress of latinity at the school level in Florence, as compared to its precocious development in the subject towns of Florentine Tuscany, reflect educational and cultural values. The powerful Latin and classical tradition would prevail in Florentine Tuscany, maintaining the predominance of the subject towns as the hub of classical school education until the later Quattrocento.
