Summary and Info
Called 'perhaps the most widely used schoolbook of the Middle Ages' by H. O. Taylor, the De nuptiis is a detailed compendium of late Roman learning in each of the seven liberal arts, set within an amusing mythological-allegorical tale of courtship and marriage among the pagan Gods. Basic to understanding Medieval allegory as well as the curriculum of Medieval education. -- Joan M. Ferrante Columbia University
