Item description for Charters of Foundation & Early Documents of the Universities of the Coimbra Group (Varia Letteren) by Jos. M. M. Hermans...
Throughout the ages, universities have always paid much attention to their own histories. For the very old universities, some of which date back more than eight hundred years, this seems less remarkable than for the more recent ones. However, the younger branches of the tree of knowledge have also acquitted themselves well.
Naturally, every university counts among its stag people who are qualified to write an informed and accurate history of their institution, but the fact that these scholars do so also proves that those who are part of the present day university realize that their academic community exists only by the grace of the historical past. The roots of a university are an essential part of its self-image; hence, the significance of this book.
