Abstract

This essay aims at giving an account of some pedagogical and syntactical aspects of Francesco da buti’s (1324–1406) , a Latin grammar written in Central Italy in the second half of the 14th century. It occupies an important place in the history of positive grammar, providing an excellent example of Latin teaching in late medieval Italy. In fact, da Buti treatise deals not only with grammar, but also with rhetoric and , as was customary in the Italian tradition in the final centuries of the Middle Ages. This article analyzes the sections devoted to nouns and verbs, while also pointing out some pedagogical features, such as the exercises of the and the use of the vernacular as a tool for learning Latin composition.
