University of Greifswald Rector's Matriculation Register

Matriculations are one of the most important sources of the personnel history of a university. Originally, they served as proof that a person had been accepted into the privilege community of the university. In the registers, the rectors recorded each newly admitted student and often also the additional teachers. In addition, at the end of their tenure each rector wrote memorabilia in which he recorded the most important events of his tenure for posterity. The Greifswald university register begins with the founding year 1456. The illustration shows the coat of arms of Rector Ericus Nicolai from 1473.
