University Education of the Social and Professional Groups in Central Europe in the 15th-18th Centuries, ed. Krzysztof Ożóg, Maciej Zdanek


“European historiography has recently been preoccupied with the research into old universities and literacy in the old communities. The University is approached from the perspective of culture society, economy and politics. The research method applied in prosopography, which enables us to build a representation of the social groups and structures out of a substantial number of biographical micro-data. The prosopographical electronic database has become an essential tool for the historians. The research agenda has been extended to such topics as the recruitment ant the number of professors and students, academic, secular, church and professional careers of the people with higher degree, their public activities, works, roles they perform and their importance. The inclusion of non-academic sources, or more specifically church, state, town, country or private sources, in the research into the educational background has constituted a considerable challenge. […]

It is the outcome of the international cooperation of scholars from Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary and Switzerland, who discussed in their research a role of university education for various social and professional groups in the late Middle Ages and in the Modern Era.“ (from an introduction of Krzysztof Ożóg and Maciej Zdanek)
