Excerpt from A Short History of Education

The present work, then, attempts to set forth briefly the pro gress of English educational institutions, taking account of such domestic and foreign conditions as have had a direct bearing upon English education. All western education to-day bears the impress of two great powers, the Roman Empire and the Christian Church and through these a third power, the intellectual life of Greece, has operated. The fact gives a certain unity to the education of Christendom which is the more striking in times when the various nations were less self-conscious than they are to-day. The earlier chapters of the book are therefore less Specifically English than the later. But, beginning with the fifteenth century, the narrative becomes increasingly English in its survey; it closes at the opening of the twentieth century.
