• Colloquia Aquitana VIII – 27 | 28 | 29 | août | 2021 | Bergerac | France • • Augustinus | Boethius | Alcuinus | The Liberal Arts and the Origin of the mediaeval University in Europe • • About the Colloquia Aquitana VIII – 2021 • • Colloquia Aquitana VIII – 2021: Illo Humphrey, PhD-HDR, Associate Researcher at the Université Bordeaux Montaigne, organizes the Colloquia Aquitana VIII – 2021, entitled « Augustinus | Boethius | Alcuinus | The Liberal Arts and the Origin of the mediaeval University in Europe ». The colloquim will take place on the 27th | 28th | 29th of August 2021, in the lovely medieval city of Bergerac, situated in southwestern France in the New Aquitania Region (Dordogne - Périgord) • • Objective : The objective of the Colloquia Aquitana VIII – 2021 is to explore through the prism of the powerful trio: Aurelius Augustinus (*Thagaste [Souk Ahras, Algérie] 354-†Hippo Regius [Annaba, Algérie] 430) | Anicius Manlius [Torquatus] Severinus Boethius (*Rome, ca. 480-†Pavie, ca. 524) | Alcuinus Euboricensis (*York | UK, ca. 730-†Tours | France, 804), the very fascinating history and developement of the European educational system between the 5th and the 14th century, which, in due course, resulted directly in the birth of the European universities, as of 1088 in Bologna, Italy | Motto: "Alma Mater Studiorum | Petrus ubique• pater legum• Bonnoia mater•" (Alma Mater of [university] Studies• Saint Peter [is] omnipresent father of the law• Bologna [is] mother [of all Studia generalia]) • • "Admontio generalis": A part of the colloquium will focus, as it should, on the well-known Capitularium XXII of Charlemagne, promulgated in 789, called "Admontio generalis" (¶1-82 | cf. ¶72, "Sacerdotibus" ("To the Attention of the Priests"): cf. Illo Humphrey, Boethius and the Liberal Arts: https://www.colloquiaaquitana.com/?page_id=754 | Bibliography I). The "Admonitio generalis", one of the most highly valued political, educational, and cultural legacies of Charlemagne (*747-†814), may be considered the Carolingian nucleus "blueprint" for all futur European education systems and curricula put into place between the 9th century and the 14th century. Drafted up so it seems by Alcuin of York himself, the influence of this important legislation was indeed far-reaching, and shaped, to a large extent, most of the European education and general culture leading up to the creation of the mediaeval University, known primitively in the 11th and 12th centuries as the "Studium generale" (pl. "Studia generalia"), then, as of the 13th century, as the "Universitas magistrorum atque scholarium discipulorum [discipularumque]" - that is to say, "The Community or Guild of Masters and Scholars, of Student disciples (male) and of Student disciples (female)", and finally, as of the 14th century, it was called simply "Universitas" • • Ad mensam Philosophiae: In fine, the organisers and participants of the Colloquia Aquitana VIII-2021 rejoice in the privilege of being able to sit at the table of Φιλοσοϕία, during 3 brief summer days in late August, and to share the harmony and substance of the seven Liberal Arts - that is to say, Quadruvium [sic]: ars arithmetica• ars musica• ars geometrica• ars astronomica• and Trivium: ars grammatica• ars dialectica• ars rhetorica, in the company of this powerful and very dynamic trio: Augustinus | Boethius | Alcuinus: "tres magistri undecumque doctissimi" ("3 masters altogether learned"). © Illo Humphrey | PhD-HDR | die sabbato• idibus maiis• anno Domini C• bis millesimo vicesimo primo (Saturday, the Ides of May, that is to say, the 15th of May, Year of the Lord C, 2021) • • Nota bene: Bibliography on this subject may be consulted here: • http://www.colloquiaaquitana.com/?page_id=28 • • https://www.colloquiaaquitana.com/?page_id=4 • • https://u-bordeaux3.academia.edu/IlloHumphrey/Talks • • https://u-bordeaux3.academia.edu/IlloH.../Colloquia-Aquitana • • © IH | ih | PhD-HDR | die sabbato• undecimo kalendas iunias• anno Dni C• MM° XXI° • • scripsi et subscripsi •
