I am currently proofreading (first of two proofreading runs) the third and last volume of Fratris Felicis Fabri Evagatorium in terram Sanctam. He is homeward bound, currently in Padua. There he mentions the university:
I was surprised that the Latin word universitas was already being used in 1484 in its modern sense of "university". Quite surprising. Yes, the university of Padua was founded in 1222, but still.Frater Felix wrote: In ea civitate sunt conventus medicantium insignes, et multi in
eis Doctores studentes; antiqua enim est universitas ibi et notabilis
in omni facultate.
