The evolution of dialectic over the course of the 16th century had significant ramifications for the study of theology. Throughout German-speaking Europe, the rhetorical dialectic popularized by the textbooks of Philipp Melanchthon and others in the first half of the 16th century was gradually followed by greater attention to the logical works of Aristotle, only to be challenged by the Ramism that became popular in Reformed schools at the end of the century. The evolution of Basel’s university curriculum reflected this development. The education of Basel’s future clergy proceeded by stages, focusing on grammar and philology at the Latin school, on rhetoric and dialectic while they were candidates for a bachelor’s degree, and advanced dialectic and natural philosophy in preparation for receiving the master’s degree.
