An Elisabethan Educator, Richard Mulcaster Jacqueline Cousin-Desjobert, La Théorie et la Pratique d’un Éducateur Élisabéthain: Richard Mulcaster c. 1531-1611 (Paris: Editions SPM, Lettrage distribution, 2003), 520 pp., € 77.00, ISBN 2 951 6752 0 8. The Elizabethan educationalist Richard Mulcaster enjoys a vivid interest in present scholarship. Richard L. DeMolen wrote numerous articles on the subject, which were followed by a monograph Richard Mulcaster (c. 1531-1611) and Educational Reform in the Renaissance , Nieuwkoop 1991. Mulcaster has lately found his French herald. The four sections of La théorie et la pratique d’un éducateur élisabéthain (10-344) have been written with undeniable sympathy for the hero chosen. The introduction of the ﬁ rst section, “Présentation” (7-92), outlines the cultural and religious situation in Elizabethan England and discusses Mulcaster’s links with the Leiden humanist circles, Calvin, Sturm, and the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. After this introduction, the author successfully answers the biographical question “Who was Richard Mulcaster?” (21-92). She pays attention to a few friendships, such as those with Emanuel van Meteren and Janus Dousa, documented by Mulcaster’s entries in their album amicorum . A well-known portrait of the Dousa family is reproduced, but the left part representing the women
