This chapter focuses on the organisation of knowledge within the university and the transfer of power over curriculum. Universities make the ultimate decisions on how knowledge should be organised, and what status should be attached to different knowledge areas. The success of the universities and of scholars in transmitting knowledge was due to two factors: the inherited authority that the curriculum gave within and without the universities and the growing organisation of university curriculum that developed and extended over the century.
