in 1556 emperor ferdinand I invited the jesuits to prague to promote catholism. they established their headquarters in the former dominican monastery of st. clement. they established a university in the 17th century. in 1773 the pope dissolved the order of jesuits and the university was secularized. today the clementinum is prague's national library. in clementinum's chapel of mirrors are frequent classical concerts that are open to the public.
