Chapter Summary

The theme Herborner concept for Elite Education was always being interpreted by Herborner side from the idea of social elite in theological perspective. The Herborn Academy was the leading reformed educational institutions in Europe. This institution owes essentially two people, the Count of Nassau-Dillenburg, Johann VI, and the theologians and jurists Caspar Olevian. Movement in the deadlocked efforts brought before the death of the priest Herborner Rauting in early 1584. After presentation of Herborner community Olevian should succeed Rautings; an idea that was strongly supported by the Count. Two documents that have been drawn up largely of Olevian show impressive conceptual and substantive orientation of Herborner High school: the Memorandum from the year 1584 and Neustadt/Pfalz "Leges Scholae" printed in 1585. The original text of the chapter is in German.
