  Quadrivium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In medieval educational theory, the quadrivium consisted of arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy.
In turn, the quadrivium was considered preparatory work for the serious study of philosophy and theology.
The quadrivium could be considered as the study of number: arithmetic was pure number, geometry was number in space, music number in time, and astronomy number in space and time.

The purpose of the medieval trivium and quadrivium was thus to elevate and prepare.
Of the quadrivium, arithmetic and geometry are embodied in math, an introduction to astronomy is one of the more popular science offerings in liberal arts education and the teaching of music expanded its scope, abandoning the mathematical focus it had in the quadrivium.
Thus a new quadrivium is needed to complement the trivium, to provide an understanding of this biosomic context of our life, starting with the quintessential biosomic nature of the fountainhead of civilization, the city.

This, therefore, is the quadrivium by which we bring a superior mind from knowledge offered by the senses to the more certain things of the intellect.
There are various steps and certain dimensions of progressing by which the mind is able to ascend so that by means of the eye of the mind, which (as Plato says) is composed of many corporeal eyes and is of higher dignity than they, truth can be investigated and beheld.
This eye, I say, submerged and surrounded by the corporeal senses, is in turn illuminated by the disciplines of the quadrivium.

Ancient astronomers did not distinguish astrology from astronomy, although they seem to have used the same science to different ends, thereby forming the basis for the distinction, which first appears around the sixth century A.D. As the fourth mathematical discipline, it is also the most complex.
Under the scheme of mathematics that would become the basis of the medieval quadrivium, these four mathemata were arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy (sometimes called stereometry).
Although the term was developed late, the quadrivium as a cornerstone of ancient pedagogy goes back at least to late antiquity, if not before.

The use of the terms trivium and quadrivium were also a play on words.

Capella and Varro were also stating that it was not enough to simply learn the seven subject areas, but that an essential part of the educational process is the synthesis — learning how the subjects interact.
Although one may argue over the quadrivium aspects of a liberal arts curriculum, one cannot argue about the fundamental and essential character of the trivium.

Thus, passages retrieved in Antiquarium can be copied and pasted into a word processing program (for example), where they will display and print (beautifully, by the way) just as well as they do in the program itself.
Although Antiquarium is commercial software, many features of the program are enabled in the demo version available at the Quadrivium web site (http://quadrivium.uogame.org/antiquarium.html), from which the complete set of required Antiquarium fonts can also be retrieved.
The Quadrivium web site is rather slow, but it is preferable to the parallel geocities site (http://www.geocities.com/quadrvm/antiquarium.html), with its web cookies and advertisements.
