 University of Ingolstadt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Lutheran movement took an early hold in Ingolstadt, but was quickly put to flight by one of the chief figures of the Counter-Reformation: Johann Eck, who made the university a bastion for the traditional Catholic faith in southern Germany.
The 1700s gave rise to the Enlightenment, a movement that was opposed to the church-run universities of which Ingolstadt was a prime example.
The university finished that year's school term, and left Ingolstadt in May of 1800, bringing to a quiet end the school that had, at its peak, been one of the most influential and powerful institutes of higher learning in Europe.

See also: University of Ingolstadt The University of Ingolstadt was founded in 1472 by Louis the Rich, duke of Bavaria at the time.
In 1512 he became prochancellor at the university and from that time until his death he was in complete control of the destinies of Ingolstadt, on which he impressed the character of ultracatholicism which made it a bulwark of the ancient faith in Germany.
The last important phase of his activity was his conflict with Butzer, whom he attacked on account of the attitude assumed by the latter in his edition of the transactions of the Conference of Regensburg.

 History of the Four Rings in Ingolstadt; 1949 to Present
One argument in favour of Ingolstadt as the home of the central depot was its good transport connections, located as it was at the heart of Bavaria.
However, the key reason for the re-establishment of the company in Ingolstadt was its centuries-old military tradition as a garrison town: this legacy included expansive outdoor areas and numerous barracks, outbuildings, casemates and the like - invaluable assets at a time when there was precious little capital for erecting new buildings.
Another factor which argued in Ingolstadt's favour was the impending collapse in business for two-wheelers: in view of plummeting demand for motorcycles, there were plans to wind down DKW motorcycle production in the short term.

The creation of inventive and arresting geometric figures was an established aspect of vault design in the southern German lands and in Bohemia at this time,14 and the vaults of the six chapels, each distinct from the others, rely on their geometric patterning for a considerable part of their interest.
The forms at Ingolstadt are admittedly extreme, but the Gothic itself was undergoing a radical rvaluation at the time that the chapels at Ingolstadt were being built.
Korner, "Die gestrte Form," 72-73, characterizes the organic vaults at Ingolstadt as sprouting "boughs of this curious, monstrous materiality, boughs that never grew in the Garden of Paradise." He thus implicitly criticizes the thesis of Oettinger, although his emphasis is on questions of imitation and representation.

 The Catholic Encyclopedia - University of Ingolstadt
Although Duke William IV (1508-50) and his chancellor, Leonhard von Eck, did their utmost during thirty years to keep Lutheranism out of Ingolstadt, and though the adherents of the new doctrine were obliged to retract or resign, some of the professors joined the Lutheran movement.
He taught and laboured (1510-43) to such good purpose that Ingolstadt, during the Counter-Reformation, did more than any other university for the defence of the Catholic Faith, and was for the church in Southern Germany what Wittenberg was for Protestantism in the north.
