History, aided by a simple system of ethics derived from the grammarof theology, will provide much suitable material for discussion: Was thebehavior of this statesman justified? What was the effect of such an enactment?What are the arguments for and against this or that form of government?We shall thus get an introduction to constitutional history--a subjectmeaningless to the young child, but of absorbing interest to those whoare prepared to argue and debate. Theology itself will furnish materialfor argument about conduct and morals; and should have its scope extendedby a simplified course of dogmatic theology (i.e., the rational structureof Christian thought), clarifying the relations between the dogma and theethics, and lending itself to that application of ethical principles inparticular instances which is properly called casuistry. Geography andthe Sciences will likewise provide material for Dialectic.

Students attended the Medieval University at different ages, ranging from 14 (if they were attending Oxford or Paris to study the Arts) to their 30s (if they were studying Law in Bologna). During this period of study, students were often living far from home and were unsupervised; thus students developed a reputation, both among contemporary sources and modern historians, for drunken debauchery. Students were frequently criticised in the middle ages for neglecting their studies in favour of drinking, gambling and sleeping with prostitutes. Considering the fact that 1/3 of the high clergy (bishops, archbishops, cardinals) attended university by the 1400s, this paints a very interesting picture of the early lives of those who commanded the Catholic church.
