The history of education within the Franciscan order during the medieval period is presented here in a new light. This comprehensive volume offers a new synthesis of Franciscan education, showing the dynamic development of the Franciscan school network, between the early thirteenth and the early sixteenth century. The organisation of study houses throughout the many Franciscan order provinces are discussed, as well as the relationship between these Franciscan study houses and the medieval universities and the various study programs offered to Franciscan students. Separate chapters are devoted to related issues, such as library formation, the instruction of homiletic techniques, and the formation of Franciscan theological schools of thought.The work emphasises the dynamics of the Franciscan school network and the importance of extra-curricular activities in the schools at convent and custodial levels.
