Item description for Literacy and Written Culture in Early Modern Central Europe by Istvan Gyorgy Toth...

This unequalled volume's key value is to place Hungary on the map of European literacy rates over the whole period between the initial stimuli of Renaissance and Reformation and the developed, state-organized educational systems of the (later) nineteenth century.

Suitable for academics across a wide range of subject areas, Tth's work is a broad international comparative analysis, concentrating on the long-term development of literacy rates and the use of written and oral culture in early modern societies. Tth also examines the social history of elementary schools and its teachers, and book reading among peasants and noblemen throughout the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries in Hungary.

Literacy and Written Culture includes significant sections on the development of libraries during the period and on the use of different languages - of particular importance is an examination of Latin usage. This volume is an extremely lively and stimulating guide providing fascinating insights into village life, legal and administrative issues and the role of the clergy. Its overall content contributes to major debates in the fields of language, literacy, linguistics and social history.
