University charters and foundations

The most important legal insurance documents of the University were kept in the office of the current rector, locked in a metal box. Finally the documents were transferred to the University Library as a deposit in 1952, and after the Archives was established, the certificates were taken into its custody. Among the approxiametly hundred documents are the university's founding charter and the official documents of the foundations set up by individuals, former students, rectors and lecturers in the 19th and 20th centuries for various purposes.
