Patriarchal School

Patriarchal School
   Established by Alexios I (q.v.), if not earlier, the school provided higher education for clergy and monks. Core subjects included theology (q.v.) and related subjects, but other topics could be introduced, depending on the teacher. Michael Italikos (q.v.), for example, taught a broad range of topics that included the Holy Scriptures, rhetoric, philosophy, and mathematics. Other famous 12th-century scholars who taught in the school included Eustathios of Thessalonike (q.v.) and the rhetorician Nikephoros Chrysoberges.
