Omnibus V: The Medieval World is the fifth in a series of six books that repeat a three year cycle of Ancient, Medieval, and Modern history; the first three are at the logic stage, and the latter three at the Rhetoric stage. Omnibus V is recommended for 11th grade (and covers Medieval History at the Rhetoric Stage), but parents may wish to preview the material to see whether their student is at a rigorous enough reading and maturity level for the materials covered. The three books in the series may be used in any order for children at that level.
Each volume features lists of both Primary and Secondary books. Primary books are the traditional Great Books, while the Secondary books provide balance in the areas of Theology, History and Literature; examples of the latter include books such as The Saga of the Volsungs and the Koran. Primary Books to read include: Chronicle of the Kings of England, Summa Theologica, The Divine Comedy, The Canterbury Tales, Institutes of the Christian Religion, the Faerie Queen, and and more.
Each chapter covers a Great Book, examining the author, context, significance, main characters, summary and setting, worldview, and providing an in-depth essay analyzing and teaching the important points of the work. Chapters conclude with five sessions that provide questions to consider, discussion ideas, text analysis, reading assignments, cultural analysis, biblical analysis, application, optional activities, summa questions, writing exercises, and more.
This book is perfect for additional students in a class, co-op, or family; the teacher's CD-ROM is not included.
Covering literature, history, and theology from a solidly Reformed perspective, editors Douglas Wilson and G. Tyler Fischer weave their understanding of God's providence and sovereignty throughout history. Emphasizing the importance of understanding presuppositionalism, evaluating worldview, and having a Christo-centric understanding of the world, the authors clearly set out the goal of their work:
"We do not learn logic and rhetoric simply to become more competent than our peers. We do it to take dominion in the name of Jesus Christ."
675 pages, indexed, with timeline, hardcover. Grade 11. Classic artwork is included throughout, some of which includes both male and female nudity.
