The identity crisis that had gripped the two Sardinian universities in the long period from Spanish to Piedmont domination took on a new urgency in the 1750s when Savoy absolutism decided it wanted to reap the benefits of its overseas possession. In 1765, one year after the reform of the University of Cagliari, the old University of Sassari, till then monopolized by the local Jesuit College, was restructured along the lines of the Turin University. In the immediate aftermath of the expulsion of the Jesuits from French soil and at a time when the attack against the Church that was sweeping across catholic Europe was in full swing, the minister Bogino managed to push through Hapsburgian- inspired royalist university reform, along the lines of the reforms of Vittorio Amedeo II, carried through with the help of the Society of Jesus which offered the Savoy ruler its wealth of scholars, scientists and, above all, teachers. Reform of the academic orders, new curricula and radical changes to the teaching staff ushered in a new season of intense teaching and scientific work at the University. Yet already in the 1770-1780s, after the dismissal of the minister Bogino and the dissolution of the Society of Jesus, a steadily growing sense of isolation and the flagging reformist ambitions of the Savoy kingdom tipped the University into a new period of cultural stagnation from which it would only reemerge in the next century.
