№ 1.In Middle ages with the help of the word ‘universitas’ (in Latin “sets of universus” that is holistic combination of many) different communities were called, such as comradeships, merchants‘ guilds, trade-production shops etc. On analogy other newly appearing communities, such as open schools started to be called ‘universitas magistrorum et sholarium’ (as corporation of teachers and students); and only with time the educational establishments started to be called u. First ‘studium’ school, then ‘stadium generale’ or general school; the attribute ‘generale’ pointed out at international character of the educational establishment; later the term started to mean the curriculum of higher schools which unite the whole set of sciences (‘universitas literarum’).
