In the first half of the 14th century, Munich was the center of intellectual, anti-papal emigration in Europe under the protection of Emperor Ludwig of Bavaria. The philosopher and theologian William of Ockham was the brain behind this center. In addition to a number of outstanding figures of that time, Marsilius of Padua, the doctor and revolutionary political thinker at the court of Ludwig lived in Munich. At the beginning of modern times, the city had a political and intellectual importance that it did not have before and did not achieve again for a very long time. Munich owed its intellectual splendor at that time to William of Ockham.
