List of oldest universities in continuous operation

A colleague recently brought to my attention this impressive list of 39 medieval universities founded before the year 1500 (hat tip: Dr Paul Jarley), though some of these venerable institutions have been closed for brief periods; for example, the University of Siena was closed 1805-1815 during the Napoleonic wars. Among other things, what I want to know is this: Did professors have academic “tenure” back then?
