The History of the University of Oxford will be an authoritative and comprehensive history of one of Britain's most important and influential institutions. Volume II examines the University during the late Middle Ages, when scholasticism was at its height. The expert contributors explore the academic pursuits of the scholars of Oxford: theology, pre-eminently, but also philosophy, mathematics, law and medicine. They examine the nature of everyday life during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries - the finances and administration of the colleges, their architecture, and the individuals who lived and worked in them. This is the definitive study of the medieval University of Oxford and a major contribution to scholarship.
