Chapter Summary

Giles of Rome makes the education to lie on behavioural models that make reference to an ideal of perfection that allows only a rigorous discipline of life, almost ascetic, to realize. The body of the child must be disciplined: every action has to be ordered, measured and adapted to the circumstances and status of the person. Every citizen and first and foremost the son of Kings and Princes, must assimilate behaviour rules that exclude any gesture disordered in name of ideal of measure. Giles of Rome observed that young people are easily influenced",mols and menables" and readily inclined to follow their passion. The excessive nature of youth attracted to the immediate satisfaction brings Giles of Rome to deal with marriage and better conditions for procreation. The original text of the chapter is in French.
