Overview

This book is about the place of pedagogy and the role of intellectuals in medieval dissent. Focusing on the medieval English heresy known as Lollardy, Rita Copeland shows how how radical teachers transformed inherited ideas about classrooms and pedagogy as they brought their teaching to adult learners. The pedagogical imperatives of Lollard dissent were also embodied in the work of certain public figures, intellectuals whose dissident careers transformed the social category of the medieval intellectual.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Rita Copeland's dense, complex, and ambitious book has a double agenda.... Pedagogy, Intellectuals, and Dissent in the Later Middle Ages is a demanding and challenging book, which reads more like a series of discrete studies than an overall thesis." Albion

"Copeland's arguments here are erudite, provocative, and challenging, and her primary sources are meticulously selected...Pedagogy, Intellectuals, and Dissent in the Later Middle Ages...is tightly focused, and the range and ambition of its scope go far beyond what might be inferred from the book's slim binding...In her depiction of Lollardy's hermeneutical leap from the academy to the public, she presents modern scholars with a formidable (but rather thrilling) benchmark for the vigor and effect of our teaching. This added element leads me to suggest that [this book] deserves the attention of not only medievalists, but scholars of other periods as well." Comitatus

"Intellectual history at its best." Arthuriana
