University Lectures: The More Things Change . . .

This is a 14th century manuscript illumination portraying Henricus de Allemania lecturing on Aristotle. The illumination appears in his commentary on Aristotle's Ethics. Note that the students are following along in their manuscripts . . . or are engaged in conversation or sleep.

By the way, less than one month until Oxford.

(A larger version of the above illumination may be found here.)
