The History of the University of Oxford will be an authoritative and comprehensive history of one of Britain's most important and influential institutions. Volume II examines the University during the late Middle Ages, when scholasticism was at its height. The expert contributors explore the academic pursuits of the scholars of Oxford: theology, pre-eminently, but also philosophy, mathematics, law and medicine. They examine the nature of everyday life during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries - the finances and administration of the colleges, their architecture, and the individuals who lived and worked in them. This is the definitive study of the medieval University of Oxford and a major contribution to scholarship.

MEDIA REVIEWS
` This volume conveys well the fascination and sophistication of medieval Oxford thought' John Marenbon, The Times
`the quality of writing is uniformly good ... all the chapters in this book are rewarding ... this volume will long stand as an indispensable work of reference, and an invaluable stimulus and guide for all interested in the cultural and institutional history of this country in the later Middle Ages. Peter Heath, Times Literary Supplement
'a rich collection of scholarly studies, ranging from the commendably thorough to the quite brilliant ... this volume, particularly when assessed in conjunction with the earlier medieval volume, represents a massive achievement of co-operative scholarship' Alan Crossley, Journal of Educational Administration and History, Volume 265, Number 2, July 1994
'is admirable in supplying aids to study in the form of cartography, tables and illustrations ... The contributors to this volume are an excellent team, most topics are opened up to an extent far beyond the reader's expectations.' Nicholas Orme, University of Exeter, EHR, Jun '94
