(p.83) 3 Distinct Roles for Scholastic Method and Cultured Eloquence
Antoine de Chandieu

Theodore G. Van Raalte

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of scholarship regarding humanism and scholastic method in the early-modern period, then focuses on developments in scholastic method in the Swiss cantons, particularly between c. 1530 and c. 1590. The place of Aristotle’s works and the role of disputations receive detailed treatment. From the classical period onward, writers had several ways of distinguishing the expansive and persuasive rhetorical style from the tightly argued method of the schools and academies. Chandieu promoted this distinction, with his own approach being but one example of many in which the humanist concern for the original sources fit seamlessly within the scholastic method in use in the academies and universities.

Keywords:   Rhetoric, scholastic method, historiography, Renaissance humanism, religious history, logic, Reformed academies, dialectic, sixteenth century
