1835-1859: the restoration of the University of Barcelona

  • In 1822, the University of Barcelona began to take shape again. Education provided by schools such as the Junta de Comerç formed the foundation. While the University of Cervera continued to exist, efforts to restore the University of Barcelona had advanced significantly by 1835.
  • In 1837, the University of Barcelona was provisionally restored. By 1842, the long campaign that had begun in 1822 finally led to the permanent restoration of the University.  
  • The University’s first official home was the former premises of the Convent of Carme, which served temporarily to house the Faculties of Theology, Canon Law and Law and later housed the Faculty of Pharmacy as well. 
  • The University experienced some years of ideological in-fighting and faculty purges during the rule of the moderate party. After the Revolution of 1868, however, the expelled professors took their chairs again and a period of educational liberalization began.
