Summary/Abstract: On 11 September 1626, Péter Pázmány, archbishop of Esztergom, donated 50 thousand ducats to build a Jesuit college in Pressburg (Bratislava). On 12 June 1631, the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Mutio Vitelleschi, acknowledged the acceptance of the donation of 50 thousand ducats from the archbishop of Esztergom and confrmed that it was used to found and build the Pressburg Jesuit college. The college was built in Kapitulská Street in 1628–1635. However, education in improvised premises started earlier, on 5 November 1627. The school was attended only by boys and there were 46 of them when the college opened. Within one month the number of students increased to more than 100, so they were divided into three classes. In 1650 there were 308 students in six classes.
