“Where does the sun go at night?” “How many alphabets are there?” “Who first invented music?” When medieval students studied their schoolbooks, they learned about the world through questions like these. From these question-and-answer texts students could also learn useful Latin phrases like “Give us some money so we can buy beer tomorrow!” Focusing on a group of these school dialogues, this talk will reconstruct the dynamic elementary curriculum of early medieval schoolrooms.
