Civilopedia entry[]

Prior to the Black Death, there was a flourishing of learning and education in Europe, and the rise of the university meant a new class of educated professional devoted to study. Some scholars focused on practical affairs like law, but a growing group turned to questions of the nature of knowledge and natural philosophy, paving the way for the early Renaissance.
