Abstract

This study examines the main developments in the history of Spanish universities from 1812 until 1983. The author examines in particular how universities evolved after the promulgation of the Pidal decree (1845) which initiated a period of liberal reform. Amongst other topics, the article considers the limits of this reform, as well as efforts to reform which emerged in the circles of the Free Institution for Education and general reformism during the Second Republic. Particular attention is given to the period of Franco 's dictatorship (1936-1975) since the 1970s were a period of great economic and social change for Spain; consideration of this change is essential to explain the new position of universities prior to the University Reform Law of 1983.
