It’s intriguing to think that a whole slew of textbooks could have existed that we simply don’t know about. It’s interesting to wonder where all these resources could have gone, since they no longer exist, while it seems as if something that was used in such a wide area should have had a better survival rate.
Very interesting! It seems like aspects of this continue today. In the trend of making texts that were in much older styles, was the content modernized, or was it too put into the context of older traditions?
