In other words, the closing of the first and most important stage of monastic education, the one dispensed in the schola, was signalled by a bodily change, the appearance of puberty, and not by some specific step in mental maturation. The adult monks' perception of their younger brothers should first be discussed. Indeed, the manner in which the educators looked at their pupils is inseparable from the pedagogical techniques they devised to transform these pupils into full-fledged monks. As a whole, the Cluniac discourse on pueritia is derogatory, even if occasionally compassionate.

Moreover, they had the opportunity to learn how to behave rightly in this context through their own private chapter, in which they had to accuse each other of their faults (Herrgott, 1726: 207; Ulrich of Zell, 1853: col. 744B-C; Hallinger, 1983: 12). In other words, children learned the disciplina by mimicking the gestures of their elders. They also learned in this way the most important monastic duty, the celebration of the opus Dei. Some explanations of these different activities were given by the adults, as Susan Boynton's study of the liturgical glosses has shown for the liturgy (Boynton, 1997: 192ff); however, the oblate was probably acquiring understanding of most of his functions inside the monastery like any apprentice, that is through time and experience.

1784B-C). These adjectives do not refer to pueritia, but to the following age in the life cycle, iuuentus. Cf. William of Volpiano (|1031): lNam et habitudo tenerrime etatis ita dissimilis uidebatur ceterorum ut nimium admirabilis haberetur' (Bulst, 1989: 258, 260). The most classical form of negation of childhood is found in the topos of the puer-senex, present in three Cluniac vitae. For instance, see Nalgod's description of Maieul (|994) in the 1120s: 'Videres in virgine puero lascivam pueritiae levitatem censoriae gravitatis acrimonia condemnari: videres insolentiam puerilem et motus incompositos aetatis illius matura morum canitie castigari' (Nalgod, 1680: 657E).
