Collegium

 

a private secondary and sometimes higher educational institution found in Western Europe from the 16th to the 18th centuries. Collegia were founded primarily by the Jesuits and accepted only the children of the ruling classes. The pupils were taught the “seven liberal arts” and theology, Latin and Greek, and some literature, geography, and history. In Russia the Kharkov Collegium, founded in 1721 in Belgorod, was well known; G. S. Skovoroda taught at this institution.
