Title page from the 1582 Douay–Rheims Bible, "specially for the discouerie of the CORRVPTIONS of diuers late translations, and for cleering the CONTROVERSIES in religion."

Reims University (French: Université de Reims or Rheims) was one of the largest and most important universities in Europe during the Middle Ages.[1] It was established in 1548 by papal bull, but shut down in 1793, during the French Revolution.

It should not be confused with the present-day University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne.
