Chapter Summary

When boys completed their grammar training, usually between the ages of fourteen and sixteen, those who had shown sufficient skill and possessed the requisite means could continue their education at the university level. The number of matriculants from Regensburg reflected, to a significant degree, broader attendance patterns within the German Empire, especially the southern and southeastern portions. The funds necessary to meet the costs associated with university study came from a variety of sources. Before 1375, the cathedral chapter, and to a lesser extent St. Emmeram, provided the majority of institutional support for Regensburg's university students. One of the most important relationships was with the university itself. The friendships cultivated during the years of study often lasted a lifetime. The problem of social mobility remains central to understanding the apparent explosion in university study that occured during the late Middle Ages.
