Education Throughout the Many Centuries





Education Throughout the Many Centuries

How could one possibly get through life without learning something new about one thing or
another? That is what is considered getting an education. Learning about life, about the
world and about how to be an individual. Dating from ancient Rome through the central
Middle Ages, education has taken on many different forms, but one thing always stayed the
same. Education has always been a vital part of society and the general way of life.

In the early centuries of existence, education was in the form of religious awakening.
Missionaries traveled from village to village to spread their beliefs. In the Christian
religion, Jesus traveled around with his disciples and spread God’s message; that God’s
blessings went to the poor, meek, pure, peacemakers and those who seek justice. The Quran
and the Bible are two examples of religious books written with the intent to educate.
Scriptures were also written about different religions. These were some of the very first
books used to educate the masses. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, for example, wrote numerous
books including Confessions and City of God. He also wrote commentaries on scripture,
treatises on dogma, sermons and letters on Christian belief. These are some of the early
ways that people used in order to educate others on their beliefs and ways of life.

Within early Christian society, the communities had a variety of teachings. They taught
how to share possessions, care for the poor, the outcasts, the orphans, and to have a
strong sense of community. In this way, the people of these communities were taught a way
of life. They were educated in the “proper” ways to live their lives. The value of
religion influenced the many ways that people were educated early on. If no one had wished
to spread his religion, then education wouldn’t have had such a strong hold as it did.
Religious teachings also help spread education in another way. Even though the
missionaries were traveling to spread their beliefs, they also couldn’t help but bring
some of their culture with them. The way they lived, what they ate, and how they acted
towards one another all began to assimilate itself into everyday life. In a way, this
educated the people of the community about the vast array of people throughout the world.
John Cassian, a Gallic Roman, founded two houses in Marseille in the early 5th century. He
write instituted monastic instruction and learned in numerous places such as Egypt, Syria,
and Cappadocia. This just gives more evidence to the numerous scholars traveling the
continent, spreading their ways, while still educating themselves.

Monasteries, though linked to religious reasons, also had their own way of educating. The
library was an important part of a monastery. They often had vast libraries filled with
numerous things ranging from books to scriptures to other like things. Learning and
schooling became central to the Irish monk’s life. They wrote, copied texts, and then
preserved them in libraries as treasures. These works included texts of the Greek and
Roman philosophers, historians and poets.

The monks also had their own way of educating each other within the monastery. A “rule”
was set in place for each monastery by which the monks were to follow. In some, The Rule
of St. Benedict was used as the rule. This taught the monks how to live, when to pray, how
to pray, what to eat, where to sleep, among many other things. Various monasteries all
over the countryside lived by these rules. Thus, if a monk were to travel from one
monastery to another, he could be assured that he knew the rules in which to follow. In
this way one author could spread his knowledge all over. Education was very important to
the monks. When they weren’t praying, much of their time was spent learning. As previously
stated, their time was spent copying scriptures and reading. This had a major impact on
the forward momentum of education.

Within communities, many different classes of people existed. The most important and the
most elite of these classes were the royalty. The royalty were highly educated in certain
fields such as philosophy, religion, and politics and had ample opportunity to learn more
about the world through traveling, without the worry of cost. The royalty always had the
upper hand when it came to education. They were the ones with the money and the influence
to get what they needed in order to learn more. They were also the ones with the ability
to write these books to learn from, because they were literate, whereas many lower classes
