Københavns Universitet / University Of Copenhagen

 
På dette sted opførte universitetet efter reformationen i 1536 sin første hovedbygning, som nedbrændte under Københavns brand i 1728. Efter at være genopført nedbrændte den igen under englændernes bombardement i 1807.

Den nuværende bygning blev opført 1829-36 med Peder Malling (1781-1865) som arkitekt og rummer i dag administration og festsal.

Ornen over indgangsportalen blev opsat efter forslag fra professor i teologi M.H. Hohlenberg, som i Ornens høje flugt og skarpe blik så et symbol på tanken og videnskanen. Han forfattedt indskriften COELESTEM ADSPICIT LUCEM, hvilket betyder: Den (ørnen) skuer det himmelske lys.

Festsalen danner rammen om universitetets fester som immatrikulationsfesten i september og årsfesten i november.

On this site, after the reformation in 1536, the University built its first main building, which burned down during the great fire in 1728. After being rebuilt, it burned down again under the bombardment by the English in 1807.

The present building was built in 1829-36 by the architect Peder Mailing (1781-1865). Today it houses administrative offices and the University's Ceremonial Hall.

The eagle over the entrance gate was put up upon the recommendation of M.H. Hohlenberg, professor in theology, who saw in the eagle's high flight and sharp sight a symbol



of thought and science. He composed the inscription, COELESTEM AOSPICIT LUCEM, which translates to: It (the eagle) gazes over the heavenly light.

The Ceremonial Hall forms the backdrop for the University's celebrations, such as Matriculation in September and the Annual Commemoration in November.
