Contributions to JMU's history

The Julius Maximilians University of Würzburg is one of the oldest universities in Germany. The university's founding in 1402 was the fourth in the territory of present-day Germany, and today JMU is the tenth oldest continuously existing university in the Federal Republic.

The publication series of the University Archives is dedicated to the reappraisal of this history. One focus is on the history of the early 20th century, since neither the period of the Third Reich nor the effects of the First World War on the University of Würzburg have been systematically studied to date. The source situation here is quite favorable, especially for the beginning of the 20th century, which was a heyday of scientific research at the Alma Julia.
