Short Description

Founded by Johannes Kerer in 1495, the Collegium Sapientiae is the oldest dormitory in Freiburg im Breigau and one of the oldest in Germany. It was originally established to provide room and board for twelve destitute students because Kerer had benefitted from a similar scholarship in Heidelberg during his studies. After the original building was destroyed in World War II, a new dormitory was built in 1968, which incorporated a few surviving elements of the Gothic structure and houses one hundred students today. Kerer personally wrote the Statuta Collegii Sapientiae or Statutes of the Collegium Sapientiae in Freiburg University between 1496 and 1501. The 1497 version is preserved in this manuscript, nearly every page of which is beautifully illuminated with interesting vignettes and amusing marginalia.
