Sir Thomas Gresham and The New Learning
- Extra Reading
The subjects chosen by Sir Thomas Gresham for his Professors were based on the ‘new learning’ of the time, and were in themselves a re-interpretation of the trivium and quadrivium of medieval study. Is Sir Thomas were setting up chairs of learning today, what areas might he choose, and how have the learning needs of the City of London changed since his day?
