The Jean-Sturm Gymnasium

The gymnasium (school) was founded in 1538 by Jacques Sturm, a major figure on Strasbourg’s political landscape. Jean Calvin taught biblical exegesis here from 1538 to 1541. A high school directed by humanist Jean Sturm known for his modern approach to pedagogy, it was made an Academy in 1566 and University in 1621. The vast neo-18th century style building was erected by architect Emile Salomon (1833-1913) in 1865 after a terrible fire on 29 June 1860 destroyed the former Dominican monastery, previously a mecca for the Friends of God mystical group where Master Eckart shared his knowledge1.
