Ain ewig Stipendium
In 1509, theologians Georg Hartsesser and Martin Plantsch gave an eternal endowment fund to the University of Tübingen in the form of the Collegium Sanctorum Georgii et Martini, offering 18 students free board, lodging and classes.
In the first, chronologically structured part of Gudrun Emberger’s study she explores the founding and consolidation of the college, its significance for the University, the impact of the Reformation and the role of the endowment fund for the Duchy of Württemberg during the confessionalisation process. The second, systematically structured part, deals with the administration and management, the selection and admission of scholars, their life and their studies. The actor-centred approach that is pursued here offers deep insights into the strictly organised, highly disciplined everyday life of the students, who were also burdened with a variety of household duties. However, it also reveals relationship patterns and power relationships.
