College of Sorbonne

The College of Sorbonne was a theological college of the University of Paris, founded in 1253 by Robert de Sorbon, after whom it was named. With the rest of the Paris colleges, it was suppressed during the French Revolution, it was restored in 1808 but closed in 1882. In recent times it came to refer to the group of academic faculties of the University of Paris, as opposed to the professional faculties of law and medicine, it is used to refer to the main building of the University of Paris in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, which houses several faculties created when the University was divided up into thirteen autonomous universities in 1970. Robert de Sorbon was the son of peasants from the village of Sorbon in the Ardennes, who had become a master of theology, a canon of the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris, the confessor and chaplain of King Louis IX. At the time that he founded his college, the University of Paris had been in existence for half a century, had thousands of students. Obtaining a higher degree in theology could take as long as twenty years, therefore required considerable financial support.

Students who belonged to the religious orders of the Franciscans and Dominicans, or from the large monasteries of Cluny or Citeaux, received housing and board from their religious orders, but independent students did not. Sorbon founded his college to provide housing and board for poorer students of theology who did not have such support. Sorbon made them into lodging for students; the college opened in 1257 with called socii. As the college grew, Sorbon provided a library containing over a thousand volumes by 1292, the largest in the university, a chapel; the Sorbonne became the most distinguished theological institution in France, its doctors were called upon to render opinions on important ecclesiastical and theological issues. In 1470, the Sorbonne had one of the first printing presses in France, it was active in the effort to suppress heresy and the spread of Protestant doctrines. Its students included Cardinal Richelieu, who studied there from 1606 to 1607. Richelieu became Proviseur, or administrator of the college on 29 August 1622.

Between 1635 and 1642, Richelieu renovated the Sorbonne. Richelieu left a large part of his fortune and his library to the Sorbonne, he was buried in the chapel. Only the chapel remains of the Richelieu era buildings; the Sorbonne was closed to students in 1791 during the French Revolution. For a brief time, under Robespierre, the chapel became a Temple of Reason. Napoleon turned the college buildings into studios for artists. In 1822, it became the home of the faculties of letters and theology of the University of Paris. In 1885, as part of the Third Republic policy of separation of church and state, the theology faculty was closed; the old buildings of the Sorbonne, with the exception of the chapel, were demolished and the new Sorbonne building, designed by Henri Paul Nénot, opened in 1889, the centenary of the French Revolution. It contained a large amphitheater, reception halls and meeting rooms, the offices of the rector of the University of Paris, the faculties of arts and sciences; the chapel was no longer used for religious services, but only for official ceremonies and exhibitions.

In 1971, as a result of the riots of demonstrations of May 1968, the University of Paris was broken up into thirteen independent faculties. The New Sorbonne building became the home of the Universities of Paris I, II, III, IV, V, the École Nationale des Chartes, the École pratique des hautes études. Robert de Sorbon, a native of Le Réthelois, was a distinguished professor and famous preacher who lived from 1201 till 1274. Sorbon found; the two principal mendicant orders—the Dominicans and the Franciscans—each had colleges at Paris where they delivered lectures which extern students could attend without fee. Robert de Sorbon decided that the university should provide free instruction, so that it could compete with the religious orders. Further, he believed the society of professors should follow the practices of the cenobitic life, except in vows, his important work was made possible by the high esteem in which de Sorbon was held at Paris, together with his intellectual brilliance, great generosity, the assistance of his friends.

The foundation dates from 1257 or the beginning of 1258. Guillaume de Saint-Amour, Gérard d'Abbeville, Henry of Ghent, Guillaume des Grez, Odo or Eudes of Douai, Chrétien de Beauvais, Gérard de Reims, Nicolas de Bar were among the most illustrious scholars connected either with the first chairs in the Sorbonne, or with the first association that constituted it; these savants were attached to the university staff. The constitution of the society as conceived by De Sorbon was simple: an administrator and guests; the provisor was the head. The associates formed the body of the society. To be admitted to it, the candidate was required to have taught a course of philosophy. There were two kinds of the bursaires and the pensionnaires; the latter paid forty pounds a year. The burse could be granted only to persons not having an income of forty (Pari

James Flint (RAF officer)

Wing Commander James Flint, was a British businessman and decorated Royal Air Force officer. During active service in World War II, he gained the unique distinction of receiving two gallantry awards for separate actions during the same operation. Flint was born on 24 May 1913 in England, he was one of four children of Edith Flint. He was educated at Trent Bridge Central School, he began work. However, the company soon went bust and he was offered a job by the company that undertook the liquidation, he trained as an accountant with the firm, R. A. Page. In August 1938, he was accepted for pilot training; when World War II broke out in September 1939, he was called up for full-time service and continued his pilot training at RAF Tollerton and RAF Brize Norton. In January 1941, he received his wings, he was posted to No. 49 Squadron RAF, based at RAF Scampton, as a sergeant pilot in February 1941. His first mission was not as a pilot but as a navigator, he had volunteered to fill in for the original navigator.

As a pilot, he flew missions. Flint was awarded the George Medal and the Distinguished Flying Medal for actions that occurred on the same flight, on the night of 5/6 July 1941, he was awarded an immediate DFM for his'cool courage and determination to strike at the enemy' during the flight. On 7 November 1941, he was awarded the George Medal. One night in July 1941, this airman was captain and pilot of an aircraft, attacked by two enemy aircraft whilst over the sea about 50 miles from the English Coast; as a result of the damage sustained, Sergeant Flint was compelled to descend on the water 800 yards from the shore. The wireless operator and air gunner were able to leave the aircraft but there was no sign of the navigator. Sergeant Flint was unable to open the astro hatch so he lowered the back of the pilot's seat, crawled through the aperture, found the navigator, badly wounded, helpless behind a spar where he had fallen; the aircraft was fast sinking but Sergeant Flint managed to drag the navigator out through the pilot's hatch.

The dinghy had been punctured and, being only inflated, sunk at once with the aircraft. The air gunner, though wounded, swam towards the shore and Sergeant Flint, at first assisted by the wireless operator until his wounds prevented him from continuing, supported the helpless navigator until they were within 50 yards of the shore where a soldier who had come out to render assistance relieved him. Sergeant Flint swam to the shore where, after seeing both the wireless operator and navigator safe and finding no sign of the air gunner, he asked for boats to be sent out to search for the missing man, at the same time giving clear instructions where to look for him, he would not leave the beach until he had seen that boats were searching for the air gunner who, it was subsequently found, must have succumbed to his wounds shortly after striking out for the shore. Sergeant Flint walked for over a mile to a waiting ambulance and was taken to hospital; this airman displayed great gallantry and disregard for personal safety in his efforts to save the helpless navigator who has since died of his wounds.

Flint's tour ended in September 1941 and he was rested from flight operations serving on the ground as an airfield controller. He was a flight sergeant. Having accepted, he was commissioned on 1 May 1942 into the General Duties branch of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve as a pilot officer, he spent the next two years at a bomber training unit as an instructor. He was promoted to flying officer on 1 November 1942, he was promoted flight lieutenant on 12 November 1942. In 1944, he converted to the Lancaster Bomber and was posted to No. 50 Squadron RAF as commanding officer. His squadron flew as air support during the Normandy Landings of June 1944, he was promoted to squadron leader on 11 June 1945. He commanded No. 50 Squadron RAF until the end of the war. On 23 March 1945, he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. Flint was demobbed in 1945. On 24 May 1958, he was allowed to retain the rank of wing commander
