Chapter Summary

Regensburg's educational landscape owed much to its status as the political and economic center of early medieval Bavaria. St. Emmeram, the most important of Regensburg's religious institutions, was founded in the eighth century, enjoying ducal and eventually imperial support. Initially located just outside Regensburg on its southwestern edge, the convent was incorporated within the walls by the city at the beginning of the tenth century. Having identified the contours of the educational landscape in late medieval Regensburg, this chapter takes a closer look inside the schools themselves. First, it considers the curricula of the schools, paying careful attention to aspects of both continuity and change. Second, the chapter looks at those who administered and directed the schools, including their social and economic origins and career paths. Finally, it considers the students themselves, their experiences, origins, and aspirations.

Keywords:early medieval Bavaria; Regensburg's educational landscape; St. Emmeram
