Bishop’s School


(also called cathedral school), during the Middle Ages, a type of secondary educational institution attached to cathedrals in the major cities of Europe. The bishop’s schools provided a broader education than the monastic and parochial schools, teaching reading, writing, grammar, arithmetic, and liturgical singing. In the late Middle Ages, some bishop’s schools taught the trivium (grammar, rhetoric, and dialectic), and a few taught the quadrivium (arithmetic, geometry, astronomy, and music).
