Over the last two decades the field of History of Education, under the paradigm of Cultural History, has been broadened to other themes and problems. From this perspective, subjects, knowledge and practices have acquired significant centrality as research objects, thus, bringing History and History of Education closer together.The following study focuses on the late 18th century to early 19th century period, with a view to legitimising as a new, modern, experimental and scientific pedagogical knowledge the (theoretical-practical) organisational knowledge forms, represented as essential to good pedagogical practice. The time span, covering the Illuminated Despotism and the birth of Liberalism, presents an element of uniformity on a socio-cultural level, as far as plans, curricula, school and didactic material, teaching resources and procedures are concerned, with profound references to the Pombaline reforms, created under the aegis of Illustration.
