Maxime Maleux

Maxime Maleux (°1995) studied Classics at KU Leuven (and one semester abroad at the Universtità degli Studi di Urbino Carlo Bo). After he obtained his MA in Classics in 2017, he studied Hebrew at the same institution. In October 2018, he started working on the Hebrew part of the project 'Ad fontes!' in the Classroom: Teaching Latin, Greek, and Hebrew Texts in the Early Modern Southern Low Countries, under supervision of Prof. dr. Pierre Van Hecke and dr. Raf Van Rooy. In November 2020, he was granted a PhD fellowship by Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO). The aim of his research is to clarify how Hebrew was taught in the sixteenth-century Collegium Trilingue Lovaniense (the Three Languages College in Leuven) by investigating Hebrew grammars written and used in the Low Countries as well as course notes made by students of the Trilingue.
