Kathryn Buehler-McWilliams,Russell E. Murray
Journal of Music History Pedagogy , 2013,
Abstract: The monochord was a standard feature of musical pedagogy in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. In the modern classroom, it allows our students to experience the pedagogical world of the medieval classroom, bringing a deeper reality to an otherwise abstract series of concepts. This article presents a general overview of the various uses of the monochord in medieval and Renaissance pedagogy and provides a lesson plan for using the instrument effectively in an undergraduate music history class.

The Left Periphery of Medieval Romance  [PDF]
Paola Beninca'
Studi Linguistici e Filologici Online , 2004,
Abstract: The paper presents a set of data from Medieval Romance (MR), pointing out the relevance they have to the mapping of the left periphery of the clause (CP), building on the seminal work of Rizzi (1997). The phenomena presented here appear to support the proposal, first made in Benincà (2001) on the basis of modern Italian, that a lower section of the CP field only hosts moved elements, while higher sections host different kinds of base-generated topics; moreover, MR data can be exploited to shed light on other aspects of the left periphery and the constructions that are hosted there (such as questions and relative clauses). Data are taken from MR varieties, including medieval dialects of Italy, going from the 12th century to the early 14th century. The whole of MR languages are considered here a set of variants of an abstract Medieval Romance , characterised by important shared properties of the functional elements (V2 syntax and related phenomena). The primary focus will be the position of complement clitics in main and dependent clauses, where a set of generalisations will be established that can be stated for the whole MR. This crucially requires making reference not to surface positions, or to a course grained distinction between core and periphery of clause structure, but rather to specific functional positions in an articulated CP structure.
Charisma, Medieval and Modern  [PDF]
Gary Dickson
Religions , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/rel3030763
Abstract: Popularized by the mass media, Max Weber’s sociological concept of charisma now has a demotic meaning far from what Weber had in mind. Weberian charismatic leaders have followers, not fans, although, exceptionally, fans mutate into followers. This essay aims to trace some of the dimensions of Weberian charismatic religious leadership in comparative perspective, medieval and modern. Examples include: preachers, “double charisma,” professors, “collective charisma,” religious radicals, the economy of charisma, transgressive sexuality, demagogues, living saints. 1
Visualization in Medieval Alchemy
Barbara Obrist
Hyle : International Journal for Philosophy of Chemistry , 2003,
Abstract: This paper explores major trends in visualization of medieval theories of natural and artificial transformation of substances in relation to their philosophical and theological bases. The function of pictorial forms is analyzed in terms of the prevailing conceptions of science and methods of transmitting knowledge. The documents under examination date from the thirteenth to the fifteenth century. In these, pictorial representations include lists and tables, geometrical figures, depictions of furnaces and apparatus, and figurative elements mainly from the vegetable and animal realms. An effort is made to trace the earliest evidence of these differing pictorial types.

The structure of the medieval town of Rupea  [PDF]
Borcoman, M.
Bulletin of the Transilvania University of Bra?ov. Series VII : Social Sciences and Law , 2010,
Abstract: The town of Rupea, set up at the beginning of the 12th century, was the capital of the county of Rupea between 1337 and 1876. Its urban structure and organization prove that it belonged to group of Transylvania’s German medieval towns. Here, alongside with the German (established in the central area), Romanians lived in the outskirts. This structure was preserved until the early 1800s, and even until nowadays although the initial ethnical composition has altered.
