The world's oldest university: Go inside the oldest university in the world
Simply awesome . But then because of the arabs . Knowlege from anicent Greece and Rome was preserved and copied, and abrab scholars even improved that knowlege . And they even discovered knowlege them self . So I have great respect for muslim/middel eastern culture. Things like the Numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 0 were brought to europe from India by arab traders. A lot of the modern medical knowlege are also abrab in origin . Things like coffee also to Europe , thanks to Trade contact with arab traders ... And because arab scholars preserved ancient Greek and roman texts in their universities in Spainand else where (remember parts of Spain was muslim from the 7th century untill 1480'es). And they there were contact with the rest of Europe . Arab scholars were also part responcible for Renaissance in 13-16 centruries.

A library does not make a university.
The oldest university in continuous operation is the University of Bologna (1088). It is a university in the sense of a higher-learning, degree-awarding institute, the word university (Latin: Universitas) having been coined at its foundation. It received, in 1158, from Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa the "Authentica habita", which settled the rules, rights and privileges of universities. Next is the Universit of Oxford, claiming its opening to 1096. Regardless of its date of birth, it is the oldest university in the English-speaking world. In 1248, Pope Innocent IV granted to Oxford a university charter by Querentes in agro. The University of Cambridge must be 3rd, because it was founded by scholars who left Oxford, but its charter was granted before Oxford in 1231.
Note: the oldest university in continuous operation in Africa is Cairo University (1908)
