Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to explore this intriguing chapter in the history of ideas and higher learning and opens a new view of intellectual and social life in eleventh- and early twelfth-century Europe. The paper is concerned with the shaping of the monastic scholarly tradition in the West; as such it is a exposition of the charismatic ideals and the intellectual aspirations of the masters and scholars who brought it into being, and whose influence was to linger on almost down to our own time and place. Monastic schools educated students in a course of studies aimed at perfecting their physical presence, their manners, and their eloquence. The formula of schools was “letters and manners” (litterae et mores), which asserts a pedagogic program as broad as the modern „letters and science.“ The main instrument of what we may calls “charismatic pedagogy” was the master’s personality, his physical presence radiating a transforming force to his students.
