From Promise to Purge: The First Years of St. Petersburg University.
Whittaker, Cynthia H.
Paedagogica Historica, v18 n1 p148-67 1978
Discusses the development of St. Petersburg University, Russia, from its inception in 1819 when it was composed of dedicated, eager scholars to the purges in 1821. Concludes that Tsar Alexander I was instrumental in these purges because of his fear that the ideals of European enlightenment in education and politics fostered by the university would result in revolution.
