Description
The appearance of the fechtbucher around 1300 heralded a sea change in medieval pedagogy that reverberated through the Renaissance and continues to have massive implications on how modern people think of the process of learning. By examining medieval documents on the subjects of rhetoric, pedagogy, and epistemology, we can see pedagogical trends developing and others disappearing in the evolution of the fechtbuch.
