This volume is the revised version of Nemerkényi's doctoral dissertation, defended at the Department of Medieval Studies, CEU, in 2004.
The author demonstrates that the Latin classics had a strong impact on the formation of Latin literacy in medieval Hungary. The four chapters of the book (The Cathedral School, The Admonitions of King Saint Stephen of Hungary, The Deliberatio of Bishop Saint Gerard of Csanád, The Monastic School) provide important contributions to the philological study of Medieval Latin and the classical tradition in the Middle Ages.
