Lovaniensia discloses the Collectio academica antiqua or the old academic collection. This collection groups all works published by members of the Old Louvain University, from its foundation in 1425 until the abolition by the French government in 1797. It is a unique collection, derived from the only Belgian academic institution under the Ancien Régime. At the split of the university in the 1970’s, the collection was divided between both universities. The re-grouping of these works on a common digital platform makes this collection again accessible as a whole, and that both to researchers as to anyone interested in the intellectual history of our regions. On this platform, the digitized works of about twenty selected professors are currently being displayed together with a short biographical outline of these professors. However, this is only a first step. The ultimate goal is the complete digitization of the old academic collection, also in the perspective of the 600th anniversary of the university (2025).
