الصفحة 3 - The progress of life is in accordance with its beginning. The preceptors of Achilles were Phœnix and Chiron, the most righteous of the Centaurs. Phœnix was sent to Achilles, while yet a child, to teach him to be a speaker of words and a doer of deeds. Hence arose a relation of affectionate regard between the master and his pupil. For this reason he is chosen, with Ajax and Odysseus, to visit Achilles in his tent, and move his resolution not to assist the Greeks. He entreats Achilles to relent:...
الصفحة 15 - Master of Arts," that is, a competent teacher of the seven Liberal Arts. The agreement respecting the license, in 1213, was the beginning of the University of Paris as an examining and degree-conferring body ; though it had been incorporated as a place of general study four years before.
