Chapter Summary

This chapter provides a brief overview of theology students in Basel to demonstrate the significance of Basel's theology faculty primarily for local boys and highlighted the attraction of other schools, particularly Heidelberg, for peripatetic scholars. In effect, the theology faculty at Basel served three different groups of students. It had the greatest influence on students from the region, which stayed there long and generally did not study anywhere else. The greatest influence of Basel's theology faculty was therefore chiefly at the local level and to a somewhat lesser degree on the other Reformed areas of Switzerland. At least with regard to the training of theologians, Basel's university remained what it had been before the Reformation, a relatively small university drawing students mainly from southern Germany and the Swiss Confederation. The influence of Basel's theologians on the second group, the peripatetic scholars who came from outside of Switzerland, was relatively weak.

Keywords: Basel; peripatetic scholars; theology students
