quod ad x attinet[fontem recensere]

De: "quod ad x attinet = idiom for "in so far as it concerns x")"—Yes, I know, but how can quod refer to universitas? IacobusAmor 16:52, 9 Iunii 2009 (UTC)

I think in such phrases, quod refers to the fact of the comparison having been made, that is to the meaning of the phrase as a whole. In this role it probably comes from the conjunction/adverbial use of quod. Allen and Greenbough lists such uses as ", quod sciam," under "accusative of specification or proviso" meaning "whereas":Allen and Greenough's Latin Grammar for Schools and Colleges By Joseph Henry Allen,...
