Administrative HistoryThe University of Paris was founded around 1170, growing out of the cathedral school of Notre-Dame. It grew to be one of the greatest centres of orthodox teaching in Europe, drawing teachers and students from many different countries, the teachers including Thomas Aquinas and Albertus Magnus. By the 14th century, it was the centre for theological education in Europe, and had faculties of arts, theology, canon law and medicine (though law and medicine were never particularly its specialities). A collegiate structure began to develop, though the colleges were always very interdependent, and the university came to be ruled by a court. Napoleon instituted considerable reform in the 18th century and over the next hundred years theology was finally dropped and new subjects took its place. However, in the twentieth century it was still the principal tertiary education institute in France, attracting students from all over France and abroad.
