Sorbonne - Universite de Paris

Sorbonne - Universite de Paris

The name is derived from the Coll?ge de Sorbonne, founded in 1257 by Robert de Sorbon as one of the first significant colleges of the medieval University of Paris; the university as such predates the college by about a century, and minor colleges had been founded already in the late 12th century. The Coll?ge de Sorbonne was suppressed during the French revolution, reopened by Napoleon in 1808 and finally closed in 1882.
