Description

The 'alumbrados' of Baeza.

Baeza had a university before Úbeda and the city of Jaén.

The building is from the late 16th century. The most significant part of the building is the courtyard.Antonio Machado was a professor here. The Blessed John of Ávila was a rector. It was founded by the chaplain Dr. Rodrigo López, a relative of Pope Paul III. The parochial nature of the Old University of Baeza led to a strain of mysticism among its students, who were known as “alumbrados”, and subsequently investigated by the Spanish Inquisition. The leading professors received prison sentences.
