Details

Starting with the medieval institution of the ‘song school’, Katherine Zieman presents a study of 14th- and early 15th-century liturgical practice and its relationship to literacy. Where many scholars have related increased literacy during this period to writing practices, Zieman focuses on the reading and singing of written liturgy, and argues that the performance of sacred texts played a vital role in learning and literacy.
