De Vrije Fries 2011 about the University of Franeker

BlogAdd commentsJul042012 

The new issue of De Vrije Fries, number 91 of 2011, is about the rise and fall of the University of Franeker (1585-1811) .
In 2011, exhibitions were held in Museum Martena in Franeker (with many professor portraits) and in Tresoar (with a reconstructed library from the early 17th century). I visited both and I must say that they were very interesting.
A conference entitled ‘ Lost but not forgotten’ was also organized in collaboration with the University of Groningen and the Fryske Akademy . The lectures of that day are largely included in this edition, supplemented with a few individual articles.
As the editors in the preface indicate, the abolition in 1811 was an almost tragic inevitability.
