History

Barrierefreiheit: Kurzbeschreibung des Bildes

The origin of the University of Salzburg dates back to the Baroque period: the Alma mater, Paridiana, was founded in 1622 by Archbishop Paris Lodron: the year 2022 will celebrate its 400th anniversary. Support of the University was provided by a confederation of 33 Benedictine abbeys of South Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Salzburg. Until its dissolution in the wake of the annexation of Salzburg to Bavaria in 1810, theological and philosophical, as well as juridical and medical lectures were held at the University.

The University of Salzburg was re-established in 1962. The resumption of the operation of the Faculty of Philosophy, as well as the inauguration of the first Rector occurred in the year 1964. Only later was the University expanded to include a Faculty of Law. Today, the University of Salzburg is divided into four faculties: Catholic Theology, Law, Cultural and Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences, as well as the Interdisciplinary departments.
