The Grail Mystery and the Seven Liberal Arts (Paperback)

Frans Lutters


The seven liberal arts -- of grammar, rhetoric, logic, arithmetic, geometry, music and astronomy -- formed the basis of an education in classical antiquity, such as Ancient Greece. The objective was not so much the acquisition of knowledge, but the development of virtues. In the Middle Ages, Charlemagne established schools throughout his European courts based on the same principles. Teachers at those schools included noteworthy Knights of the Grail, as well as monks from Britain and Ireland. This fascinating book explores the structure of this unique educational approach, one which modern Waldorf schools are working to transform for the modern age. Rather than A comprehensive work of research, richly illustrated, the book offers ideas and insight for both teachers and parents, alongside an inspiring vision of future educational work.
