Looking at the paper trail from eighteenth-century Prussia to the founding of the University of Michigan in the mid-nineteenth century, this chapter suggests that the actions of profoundly pious and religiously motivated men as inventing not a secular university but one with a new mission, far from former curricula designed for the re-production of old elites.
