Before the rise of universities, cathedral schools educated
students in a course of studies aimed at perfecting their physical
presence, their manners, and their eloquence. The formula of
cathedral schools was "letters and manners" (litterae et
mores), which asserts a pedagogic program as broad as the
modern "letters and science." The main instrument of what C.
Stephen Jaeger calls "charismatic pedagogy" was the master's
personality, his physical presence radiating a transforming force
to his students. In The Envy of Angels, Jaeger explores
this intriguing chapter in the history of ideas and higher learning
and opens a new view of intellectual and social life in eleventh-
and early twelfth-century Europe.
