"...With this welcome book by Maxmilian Schuh, a recent PhD from Munster University, now at Goettingen, we have an important study that shows in detail the ways in which Renaissance educational ideas were incorporated in the University of Ingolstadt. [...] He is particularly successful in showing the ways that instruction in these disciplines was enhanced, allowing for increased attention to humanistic elements [...] Much of the material upon which Schuh depends has been studied previously, although there is some new manuscript evidence he is able to analyze. His contribution is to present a new interpretation of it, especially identifying and emphasizing elements of humanism that had been either minimized or ignored before. His argument about the centrality of the arts faculty as the locus that facilitated the most important developments integrating humanism is well established. The details he provides make a strong case for seeing humanistic elements at Ingolstadt well established prior to the arrival of Celtis." Paul W. Knoll in Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 67, No. 1 (Spring 2014), pp. 202-203 (http://www.jstor.org/stable/10.1086/676169, accessed: 14/05/2014) "...Sie [sc. die Arbeit] besticht nicht zuletzt durch ihre klare Gliederung, ihre gute Lesbarkeit und erfrischende Knappheit. Die Argumentation ist klug und schlussig, die Interpretation der Quellen weitsichtig und ausgewogen vorgenommen worden. Mit seiner Studie schliesst Maxmilian Schuh auf souverane Weise eine Lucke in der Erforschung der Fruhzeit der Universitat Ingolstadt."
