    • X is derived from the name of the great Scholastic theologian and philosopher John X Scotus, whose works on logic, theology and philosophy were accepted textbooks in the universities from the 14th century. X was a name applied by early opponents to the followers of Scotus, who were less disparagingly called the Scotists. Hence the term came to refer to anyone devoted to sophistry in their argumentation. When, in the 16th century, the Scotists obstinately opposed the new learning (i.e., the English Renaissance), the term X became, in the mouths of the humanists and reformers, a term of abuse, a synonym for one incapable of scholarship. X are often comedically shown wearing paper cone hats. Schoolchildren were sometimes compelled to wear a X cap and to sit in a stool in the corner as a form of humiliating punishment for misbehaving or for failing to demonstrate that they had properly performed their studies.
