This volume contains an adept translation of the work itself by Donald A. Steele S.J., and in addition an historical introduction, which includes a brief biography as well as an evaluation of Bolzano the mathematician, logician and physicist.

This is the first of four volumes that will comprise A History of the University in Europe, covering the development of the university in Europe (East and West) from its origins to the present day. No other up-to-date, comprehensive history of this type exists: its originality lies in focusing on a number of major themes viewed from a European perspective, and in its interdisciplinary, collaborative and transnational character. Volume I, covering the Middle Ages, places the medieval European universities in their social and political context. After explaining the number and types of universities from their origins in the twelfth century to around 1500, it examines the inner workings as an institution and paints a general picture of medieval student life.

Against this long and complex background, which included both religious and magical medicine, Audrey Cruse looks at the many different aspects of medicine and health in the Roman Empire, especially Roman Britain.

Ce livre historique peut contenir de nombreuses coquilles et du texte manquant. Les acheteurs peuvent generalement telecharger une copie gratuite scannee du livre original (sans les coquilles) aupres de l'editeur. Non reference. Non illustre. 1889 edition. Extrait: ...chaque detail infime; le moindre petit morceau de la voute ou des murs serait a lui seul une piece de musee. Et tant de rares et extravagantes choses, arrivant a composer dans leur ensemble de grandes lignes tranquilles; tant de formes vivantes, -tant de corps contournes, d'ailes rebroussees, de griffes tendues, de gueules ouvertes et de regards louches arrivant a faire du calme, du calme-absolu, a force d'harmonie inexplicable, de demi-jour, de silence... Je crois du reste que c'est ici la quintessence de cet art japonais dont les lambeaux apportes dans nos collections d'Europe ne peuvent donner l'impression vraie. Et comme on est frappe de sentir cet art si eloigne du notre, parti d'origines si differentes; rien qui derive, meme de loin, d'aucune de ces antiquites a nous, grecque, latine ou arabe, auxquelles sont puisees toujours, sans que nous nous en rendions compte, nos notions natives sur les formes ornementales; ici, le moindre dessin, la moindre ligne, tout nous est profondement etranger, autant que pourraient l'etre des choses V venues de quelque planete voisine, jamais en communication avec notre cote de la terre. Tout le fond du temple, ou il fait presque nuit, est occupe par de grands portes de laque noire et de laque d'or, a ferrures d'or cisele, fermant un lieu tres saint que l'on refuse de me montrer. On m'explique du reste qu'il n'y a rien dans ces armoires; mais ce sont des endroits ou les ames divinisees des heros aiment a se tenir; les pretres ne les ouvrent qu'a certaines..
