Overview

Medieval Reading: Grammar, Rhetoric and the Classical Text by Suzanne Reynolds

This book investigates how people learnt to read in the middle ages. It uses glosses - medieval teachers' notes - on classical Latin texts to show how these complex works were used in a very basic and literal way in the classroom, and argues that this has profound implications for our understanding of medieval literacy and hermeneutics. Suzanne Reynolds discusses issues including the relationship of Latin and vernacular languages, the role of classical texts in medieval culture, ideas of allegory in the middle ages, and medieval literary theory.
