Naming[edit]

I am confused about the naming. In English it's commonly known as the University of Marburg. The proper German is Philipps-Universität Marburg. So, why isn't it one of them? I suppose the English translation of the German isn't a bad idea... but, is this the proper naming convention?

You're right! The head should read: University of Marburg (Philipps-Universität Marburg). 1 March, 2006.
