This volume focuses on the Lemgo Grammar School curriculum drawn up in 1559 by the then headmaster Bernhard Copius.
Bernhard Copius "revived the grammar school" by taking the reformed curriculum of Petrus Ramus, Johannes Sturm and Philipp Melanchthon and developing it into a whole new concept. In Lemgo he found the conditions favourable for the implementation of his ideas. However, several distinguished pupils were taught his curriculum who were in employment at universities, courts or churches.
The volume includes contributions by Robert Seidel on the literary aspects of school education at the time, Stefan Ehrenpreis on 16th-century schools from a historical perspective, and Bartold Haase on the association between theology and school. Alexander Wagner discusses music in the age of Calvin, Fritz Udo Krause deals with Calvin and Melanchthon in a theatrical context. Lothar Weiß's contribution is concerned with Bernhard Copius and his pupils and the library collection of the old grammar school, Jürgen Scheffler discusses the confessional dispute between Lutherans (Hamelmann) and Reformists (Copius) in Lemgo, and Friedrich W. Bratvogel discusses Copius' school curriculum and teaching methods.
