Church and state sixteenth century higher education in Zurich and its ties to the city-state government


Goeing, Anja-Silvia (2020). Church and state sixteenth century higher education in Zurich and its ties to the city-state government. In: Goeing, Anja-Silvia; Parry, Glyn; Feingold, Mordechai. Early Modern Universities: Networks of Higher Learning. Leiden: Brill, 63-82.

Abstract

In the early modern period, the aim of institutions of higher learning to integrate into a larger whole, such as the state, a church, or the international intellectual world, was an important condition for the development of knowledge and intellectual behavior in Europe. The focus of this study is Zurich, a politically separate part of the Holy Roman Empire in the tradition of the free imperial cities with a strong bourgeoisie, which was at the same time a full member of the Old Swiss Confederation. Both political connections impacted the direction and development of cultural exchange in Zurich.
