Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author gives a list of characteristics, which make good teacher and advises to the parents to show vigilance " cum hurried diligentia " - in the choice of the one who will be responsible of the education of their children. For Giles of Rome, as for Thomas Aquinas, the teacher is the one who holds the knowledge in a perfect way. The teacher must also show a good memory that allows him to remember the crossed elements for better prevention. The author illustrates his comment by referring to the example of person who wishes to recover a wand but, not knowing anymore in which sense it was folded, cannot. The considerations of Gilles of Rome on the role of teacher is a part of long tradition to which St. Augustine, with his De Magistro, has largely contributed. The original text of the chapter is in French.
