OpisTemeljem kritičke interpretacije arhivskoga gradiva, novinskih članaka i relevantne literature autori se bave djelovanjem Plemićkoga konvikta u Zagrebu. On nalazi uporište u isusovačkoj odgojno–obrazovnoj tradiciji i utjecajima povijesno– političkih okolnosti od njegove obnove sredinom 19. stoljeća do Prvoga svjetskoga rata. Rad je usredotočen na organizacijske i odgojno–obrazovne postulate djelovanja konvikta, kao i na svakidašnjicu pitomaca u zadanom razdoblju. Based on the analysis and critical interpretation of archival material, newspaper articles and relevant literature, the authors research the internal organization of the Plemićki konvikt boarding school in Zagreb, which was a secondary school. It is at the foundation of the Jesuit educational tradition and a major influence upon historical– political circumstances since its re–establishment in the mid–19th century until WWI 1914–1918. The paper focuses on organizational and educational postulates of the boarding activities as well as on the everyday life of the boarding school students in the said period. It is important to emphasize that the establishment of the boarding school was supported both by state and local governments. The local nobility did so by setting up a fund for financing the poorer students from out of their financial and material surpluses. Society was in need of young, well–reared and educated individuals, such that all attention with regard to the formation of these children was focused on the boarding school. Its mode of operation and functioning with regard to general educational and theological orientation remained a qualitative educational constant until the beginning of WWI. A strict educational system for the pupils was enforced which would prepare them for an independent life, a cultural demeanor and a major role in society. The overall educational activity of the boarding school does not, however, deviate from established pedagogical norms, nevertheless at the same time, acts in the spirit of new pedagogical tendencies.
