  • The University of Paris (French: Université de Paris), metonymically known as the Sorbonne (French: [sɔʁbɔn], its historical house), was a university in Paris, France. Appearing around 1150 as a corporation associated with the Notre Dame de Paris cathedral school, it is the second-oldest university in the world. Chartered in 1200 by King Philip II (Philippe-Auguste) of France and recognised in 1215 by Pope Innocent III, it was often nicknamed after its theology collegiate institution, College of Sorbonne, founded about 1257 by Robert de Sorbon.Internationally highly reputed for its academic performance in the humanities ever since the Middle Ages – notably in theology and philosophy – it introduced several academic standards and traditions that have endured ever since and spread internationally, such as doctoral degrees and student nations. Vast numbers of Popes, royalty, scientists and intellectuals were educated at the University of Paris.Following the turbulence of the French Revolution, education was suspended in 1793; its faculties were partly reorganised by Napoleon as the University of France, which operated between 1793 and 1896.In 1970, following the May 1968 events, the university was divided into 13 autonomous universities. Some of the new universities took over the old faculties and the majority of their professors: humanities by Paris-Sorbonne University, law by Panthéon-Assas University, medicine by Paris Descartes University, and natural sciences by Pierre and Marie Curie University and Paris Diderot University. Others, like Panthéon-Sorbonne University, chose to be multidisciplinary.In the 2010s, the thirteen Parisian universities formed seven different alliances in order to help preserve their various degrees of attributed legacy of the University of Paris, for example the Sorbonne University (alliance).

  • The University of Paris (French: Université de Paris), metonymically known as the Sorbonne (French: [sɔʁbɔn], one of its buildings), was a university in Paris, France, from around 1150 to 1793, from 1806 to 1970.Emerging around 1150 as a corporation associated with the cathedral school of Notre Dame de Paris, it was considered the second-oldest university in Europe. Officially chartered in 1200 by King Philip II (Philippe-Auguste) of France and recognised in 1215 by Pope Innocent III, it was later often nicknamed after its theological College of Sorbonne founded by Robert de Sorbon and chartered by French King Saint Louis around 1257.Internationally highly reputed for its academic performance in the humanities ever since the Middle Ages – notably in theology and philosophy – it introduced several academic standards and traditions that have endured ever since and spread internationally, such as doctoral degrees and student nations. Vast numbers of popes, scientists, intellectuals and royalty were educated at the University of Paris.In 1793, during the French Revolution period, the university was closed and by Item-27 of the Revolutionary Convention, the college endowments and buildings were sold. A new University of France replaced it in 1806 with four independent faculties: the Faculty of Humanities ("Faculté des Lettres"), the Faculty of Law (later including Economics), the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Theology (closed in 1885).In 1970, following the May 1968 events, the university was divided into 13 autonomous universities. Although all the thirteen universities that resulted of the original University of Paris split can be considered its inheritors, just three universities of the post-1968 universities inherited the name "Sorbonne", as well as its physical location in the Latin Quarter (i.e. Pantheon-Sorbonne University (Paris I); University of Paris III: Sorbonne Nouvelle; and Paris-Sorbonne University (Paris IV).From 2010, several of the University of Paris successors started to reorganise themselves into different groups of universities and institutions (COMUE), that, later, were upgraded to "pôles de recherche et d'enseignement supérieur". As a result, nowadays we have different university groups in the Parisian area, such as Sorbonne Paris Cité, Sorbonne Universities, Paris Saclay, Paris Lumiéres, Paris-Seine, and so on.In 2018, two of the inheritors of the old University of Paris, Paris-Sorbonne University and Pierre and Marie Curie University, will become a single university called Sorbonne University.In 2019, two other inheritors of the University of Paris, namely Paris Diderot University and Paris Descartes University, are also expected to merge.
