Ithaca, New York: Cornell University Press. In an excellent study of grammatical instruction in Florence in the fourteenth century, Paul Gehi has demonstrated the conservative nature of that century's grammatical instruction. He has also shown that the teachers of reading and the slightly more advanced teachers of grammar had blanched out most of the classical mythology and morally controversial classical authors that were part of the traditional medieval curriculum.

Addressing the social status and cultural role of the grammar masters, Gehl considers as well the larger symbolic value of Latin as a vehicle of high culture in a bilingual society.
Focusing on one distinctive element of the early Renaissance reading public - boys who studied Latin grammar in Florence - Paul F. Gehl sheds new light on the history of schooling in the West. Far from advancing the cause of humanism, he shows, the elementary grammar masters of fourteenth-century Florence worked against it in the name of morality. Addressing the social status and cultural role of the grammar masters, Gehl considers as well the larger symbolic value of Latin as a vehicle of high culture in a bilingual society.
