The Struggle between the University Students in the Spanish Modern Age

Ana María Carabias Torres


When studying university students from the 15th to the 18th century, the word "violence" has to be emphasised. Like any other social group of the time, university students used a great deal of physical violence, which was reinforced by their youth and their knowledge of judicial proceedings which they used to appeal to judges. In this sense, it is a very particular case of violence in this period: in the student environment violence was more destructive, both from a physical and ethical point of view.
