The Seal of Institutum Mauritanum is the recast of 13th century original seal of the Tallinn Dominican Convent, featuring St. Catherine of Alexandria, the patron saint of medieval scholars, with her usual symbols of wheel and a crown and a sword.
St. Catherine was tortured and executed because she humiliated the political elite with her learning and eloquence in defending the highest virtues of human telos.
