Abstract

This article brings together old and new ideas and information to provide a different perspective than has so far prevailed upon the relationship between the universities and the professions in the early modern period. It focuses not only upon the direct impact of the so-called educational revolution upon the learned professions but also upon the indirect and less easy to quantify implications of that phenomenon. Special attention is paid to the transference of teaching methods from the universities to the learned professions and to the importance of the patronage system in linking universities and professions. Examples are drawn from a wealth of manuscript sources.
