The Students' Monument

Aiud, judetul Alba

Address,,Parcul municipal Aiud

Description

The Students' Monument is the oldest public monument in the city. It was raised in the city's park (on the Chapel Hill), in memory of the college students who fell in the battles of 1704 against the Habsburg armies, to commemorate 200 years since the events. The monument has local historical value. Built in the shape of a canopy and made out of stone, the monument has a dome supported by four columns and at the top the urn with curtain.

The columns are supported on a pedestal, which ascends a few steps. In the interior space of the column is located a stone altar. This has the college's oval emblem on the platform and an open book in its middle, with the covers placed on two crossed rods, each sidelined by a branch of oak and olive.

In the space outside the medallion, at the top and bottom, are two inscriptions in Latin: "SANGVINE SVA SVPREMA LEGE SVBSCRIBANTES HIC IACENT, STUDIOSI COLEGII BETHLENIAHI A.D. MDCCIV DIE XVI MARTII", and the students' names are commemorated on the edges of the base that supports the altar. The monument's style is characteristic to the period around 1900.
