Resumo: Historically universities tended to be like monasteries. In fact some started their early history as such. And explicitly or implicitly many Higher Education (HE) institutions still maintain some of the features of these old monasteries. Ideology is an important feature. It might no longer be a belief in God, but certainly the belief in Truth and the duty to seek true knowledge and strive toward a better world have remained, in some form or another, the mission of most universities. The idea also that a university is not a company with an employer and employees, but a community of kindred spirits, living in relative poverty, has stayed with us. And this community feels strongly related to all university communities in the world. Again, universities have kept this essence of internationalism which is typical for monasteries and religious orders. They even kept the notion of hospitality. Universities welcome, for many centuries now, visiting scholars from universities far away as our sisters or brothers. Outside religions and universities this type of international hospitality and professional comradeship is rare.
