The lecture explores the links between writing, teaching and reception: Teaching literature was written by masters of medicine at Montpellier University, Europe's most famous medieval centre of studies and later transmitted to Ireland, where it was translated for a society in which the study of medicine was organized in an entirely different manner. It looks at teaching, and explores the intriguing reflexes in Irish manuscript literature hinting at scholastic debates from Montpellier's heyday.
