Abstract:

Much is known about the grammar of the modistae and about its eclipse;
this book sets out to trace its rise. In the late eleventh century
grammar became an analytical rather than an exegetical discipline
under the impetus of the new theology. Under the impetus of Arab
learning the ancient sciences were reshaped according to the norms of
Aristotle's Analytics, and developed within a structure of speculative
sciences beginning with grammar and culminating in theology. Though
the modistae acknowledge Aristotle, Donatus, Priscian and the Arab
commentators, their roots also lie in Augustine and Boethius, and they
took as much from their scholastic contemporaries as they gave
them. This book traces the genesis of a grammar which communicated
freely with other speculative sciences, shared their structures and
methods, and affirmed its own individuality by defining its object as
the causes of language.
