Introduction to The Trivium

It was a return to teaching the Trivium arts (grammar,logic and rhetoric) that started the renewal of classical education nearly 30 years ago. In fact much of the renewal of classical education can be characterized as “Trivium-Based Education.” This seminar is designed for those new to classical education who need to understand the origin, development and modern recovery of the Trivium arts. In this seminar we will discuss the important of the arts as verbal arts that impart the mastery of language, and explore the plave of these arts in the broader context of classical education that includes the Quadrivium, but also musical and gymnastic education. Finally, we will discuss the various ways the Trivium is being adopted and deployed in classical schools around the U.S.
