Abstract


Nikephoros Gregoras’ “didaskaleion”

This paper focuses on the foundation and function of a school- “didaskaleion” by Nikephoros Gregoras in the first half of 14th century (ca 1325-1350). Information about this school is given by Gregoras himself in his Letters, as well in his History( “Rhomaike Istoria”), whereas secondary information can be traced in his most prominent student s work, Isaak Argyros. This institution was located in Chora Monastery and, according to his founder, its basic aim was to protect against extinction and transmit all the knowledge related with “tetraktys” and especially astronomy. Except for examining information about the curriculum and the students of this school, the present study examines thoroughly Gregoras’ pedagogic principles and emphasizes on his modern aspect on the way he relates adolescent psychology with development education.
