Gelehrte zwischen Humanismus und Reformation: Kontexte der Universitatsgrundung in Basel 1460 by Martin Wallraff
The University of Basel was founded in 1460 on the basis of a privilege from Pope Pius II. As a young man, this pope had spent several years in the town and felt a strong affinity with it throughout his life. This volume begins with an examination of this prominent humanist and describes the contexts of the founding of the university in a series of further articles. The other examined dimensions are the urban and university contexts, as well as the church and art.
