The LIST OF MEDIEVAL UNIVERSITIES comprises universities (more precisely, Studium Generale ) which existed in Europe
Europe
during the Middle Ages
Middle Ages
. It also includes short-lived foundations and European educational institutions whose university status is a matter of debate. The degree-awarding university with its corporate organization and relative autonomy is a product of medieval Christian Europe. Before 1500 more than eighty universities were established in Western and Central Europe
Europe
. During the subsequent Colonization of the Americas the university was introduced to the New World , marking the beginning of its worldwide spread as the center of higher learning everywhere (see List of oldest universities ).

DEFINITION

Main articles: Studium Generale and Medieval university

There were many institutions of learning (Studium) in the Middle Ages in Latin Europe
Europe
— cathedral schools , "schools of rhetoric" (law faculties), etc. Historians generally restrict the term "medieval university" to refer to an institution of learning that was referred to as Studium Generale in the Middle Ages.

There is no official strict definition of a Studium generale, the term having emerged from customary usage. The following properties were common among them, and are often treated as defining criteria:

* that it received students from everywhere (not merely the local district or region); * That it engaged in higher learning — i.e., that it went beyond teaching the Arts , and had at least one of the higher faculties ( Theology
Theology
, Law or Medicine ). * that a significant part of the teaching was done by Masters (teachers with a higher degree) * that it enjoyed the privilege of jus ubique docendi — i.e., masters of that school were entitled to teach in any other school without a preliminary examination. * that its teachers and students were allowed to enjoy any clerical benefices they might have elsewhere without meeting the mandatory residency requirements prescribed by Canon Law * that it enjoyed some degree of autonomy from local civil and diocesal authorities.

Charters issued by the Pope
Pope
or Holy Roman Emperor
Holy Roman Emperor
were often needed to ensure privileges 4–6. The fourth condition (teaching elsewhere without examination) was originally considered by scholars of the time to be the most important criterion, with the result that the appellation Studium Generale was customarily reserved to refer only to the oldest and most prestigious schools — specifically Salerno, Bologna, Paris, and sometimes Oxford
Oxford
— until this oligopoly was broken by papal and imperial charters in the course of the 13th century. The fifth criterion (continued benefices) was the closest there was to an "official" definition of a Studium Generale used by the Church and academics from the 14th century onwards, although there were some notable exceptions (e.g., neither Oxford
Oxford
nor Padua
Padua
received this right, but they were nonetheless universally considered "Studia Generalia by custom").

Modern historians have tended to focus on the first three requirements (students from everywhere, at least one higher faculty, teaching by masters). This has led to contention in making lists of Medieval universities. Some Italian universities, for instance, were quick to obtain papal charters and thus the privileges and title of a Studium Generale, but their student catchment never went much beyond the local district or they had only a couple of masters engaged in teaching. Other comparable schools (notably the more prestigious cathedral schools of France), may have had wider student catchment and more masters, but neglected or failed to secure the chartered privileges and thus were never referred to as Studium Generale. It is common to include the former and exclude the latter from lists of "Medieval universities", but some historians have disputed this convention as arbitrary and unreflective of the state of higher learning in Europe.

Some historians have discarded the Studium Generale definition, and come up with their own criteria for a definition of a "university" — narrowing it by requiring, for instance, that a university have all three higher faculties (Theology, Law, Medicine) in order to be considered a "Medieval university" (very few had all three), whereas others widen it to include some of the more prestigious cathedral schools , palace schools and universities outside of Latin Europe (notably in the Greek and Islamic world).

There is also contention on the founding dates of many universities. Using the date of acquisition of a papal and royal/imperial charter is inadequate, as the older universities, believing their status and reputations sufficient and indisputable, refused or resisted asking for an official charter for a long time. Some historians trace the founding of a university to the first date when evidence of some kind of teaching was done in that locality, even if only local and limited. Others wait until there is evidence of higher learning, a wide student catchment, the emergence of its masters teaching elsewhere or a more definitive mention of it as a Studium generale.

Bologna, Italy The first university in the sense of a higher-learning, degree-awarding institute, the word university having been coined at its foundation.

Paris
was known as a universitas magistrorum et scholarium (a guild of teachers and scholars), by contrast with the Bolognese universitas scholarium.

The university had four faculties: Arts, Medicine, Law, and Theology. The Faculty of Arts was the lowest in rank, but also the largest as students had to graduate there to be admitted to one of the higher faculties. The students were divided into four nationes according to language or regional origin: France, Normandy, Picardy, and England. The last came to be known as the Alemannian (German) nation. Recruitment to each nation was wider than the names might imply: the English-German nation included students from Scandinavia and Eastern Europe.

University
Kingdom of Poland Kraków, Poland Founded by Casimir the Great under the name Studium Generale, it was commonly referred to as the Kraków Academy. The institution's development stalled upon the king's death in 1370, owing primarily to a lack of funding. The academy lacked a permanent location, so lectures were held across the city at various churches and in the Kraków Cathedral School. Further development again resumed in the 1390s, by the initiative of King Władysław Jagiełło and his wife Jadwiga of Poland ; at which point the school became a fully functioning university with a permanent location. The university was forcibly shut down during the German Occupation of Poland (1939–1945) . The staff was deported to Nazi concentration camps , and many of its collections were deliberately destroyed by the occupying German authorities. Within a month after the city's liberation, the university again reopened with some of the original pre-war staff who survived the occupation.
