Chapter Summary

The term 'Strasbourg School' has in fact an ambivalence which this chapter exploits in order to engage two dimensions of the Martyr-Strasbourg connection. In 1528, a school commission composed of three scholarchs from the councils was established, and in addition to German-language elementary schools for boys and girls and two Latin schools were also established. These schools were intended to bring a humanist orientation to the formation of evangelical youth. The teaching of biblical languages was so central to the reformers' educational pre-occupations, that some outsiders construed this to be a rejection of Latin, and the impression had to be corrected in letters to both Luther and Beatus.
