Chapter Summary

University study, education and science, that were from the perspective of the rulers side-effects, introduced nevertheless one of the most momentous processes of innovation and compensation in Germany. Since the founding of Prague and subsequent German universities, higher learning could for the first time be acquired within the empire and north of the Alps, rather than abroad. Consequences of this fact can be discussed with the example of recruitment, concentrating on four aspects of this in particular: first, quantitative, secondly, spatial, thirdly, social and, last, the academic aspect. The offer of a university education within the German empire was surprisingly popular. The social recruitment of universities became particularly trenchant. In academic terms, members of German universities were extremely unevenly dispersed across the classical four faculties of theology, both fields of law, medicine and the liberal arts.

Keywords: academic aspect; church law; German university; liberal arts; medicine; quantitative aspect; sixteenth century; social recruitment
