Chapter Summary

This bibliography of the book A Companion to John of Salisbury presents a list of reference works, translations and books relevant to the discussion on John of Salisbury and the schools of the 12th century. John's Metalogicon provides particularly important testimony not just about the 12th-century schools, but about his own vision of what an ideal education should provide. In this, John of Salisbury is a good representative of one of typical features of "the renaissance of the 12th century": travel for the sake of study. John's choice of Paris and of Peter Abelard as his teacher reflects a new configuration of the educational landscape.

Keywords: 12th-century schools; John of Salisbury; Metalogicon; Paris; Peter Abelard
