This section focuses on the diffusion of grammatical and rhetorical theory in Latin teaching and especially in English vernacular writing. It presents texts that represent aspects of this diffusion and approaches them through related developments in the language arts where new critical interests and cultural values were accommodated by old frameworks. It also considers the continuity with older practices and outlooks, especially with respect to the teaching of Latin language and composition, by citing key ancient and medieval preceptive works in grammar and compositional rhetoric. Finally, the extension of grammatical pedagogy into non-traditional areas is discussed.
