Historical Note

It is not known for certain who actually wrote Propositiones ad Acuendos Juvenes, but Alcuin of York is a distinct possibility.

$\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ takes the view that it is better to attribute it to somebody than leave its authorship completely anonymous, and Alcuin of York is as good a guess as any.

It first appeared in approximately the $9$th century.
