Education and Apprenticeship

Education and Apprenticeship

(p.138) Chapter Seven Education and Apprenticeship
Kith, Kin, and Neighbors

This chapter examines the religious, cultural, and occupational aspects of upbringing, broadly construed, in seventeenth-century Wilno. One of the terms for “upbringing” generally used at the time, wychowanie (a verbal substantive from the infinitive wychowac´), also included—perhaps even implied for the majority—first and foremost the simplest material aspects of care for minors: food, clothing, shelter. Here the chapter looks at spiritual, intellectual, and practical components of providing and acquiring training in the faith and the tools of a profession and/or trade. The chapter’s focus is largely on the role of confessional allegiances and identities in forming interpersonal associations in the context of providing and acquiring an education in the broader sense of the term.
