Its Roman Catholic university, founded in 1472, and long famous, was transferred in 1800 to Landshut. The first Jesuit college established in Germany was founded at Ingolstadt in 1555.

Ingrians, a tribe in the Russian government of St. Petersburg, belonging to the Tchudic branch of the Finns, now reduced to about 18,000, in 200 small and wretched villages. The Ingrians are poor and ignorant, but begin to assimilate more with the Russians; and many have forsaken the Protestant religion, which is that of the majority, for the Greek church. The Ingrians derive their name from the river Inger or Izhora. The strip of land between the Neva, the lake of Ladoga, the gulf of Finland, the Narva, and the governments of Pskov and Novgorod, was called Ingermannland or Ingria by the Swedes, who obtained possession of it at the beginning of the 17th century. Reconquered by Peter the Great in 1702, it has formed since 1783 the bulk of the government of St. Petersburg.

Ingulphus, An English Monk

An English Monk Ingulphus, born in London about 1030, died at the monastery of Croy-land, Dec. 17, 1109. He was educated at Oxford, and attracted the attention of Editha, queen of Edward the Confessor, who became his patroness, and introduced him to William, duke of Normandy, who made the young Saxon his secretary. He resigned that office in 1064, accompanied Sigfried, duke of Mentz, to the Holy Land, and became a monk in the abbey of Fontenelle, in Normandy, whence in 1076 he was invited to England by William, and appointed abbot of. Croyland. The Historia Monasterii Croylandensis, from 664 to 1089, was long regarded as the work of Ingulphus, but Sir Francis Palgrave has proved it to be of a later age.
