Upcoming conferences

Past conferences

The Impact of Learning Greek, Hebrew and 'Oriental' Languages on Scholarship, Science, and Society in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance (Leuven; December 13-15, 2017)

The 2017 LECTIO conference seized the 500th anniversary of the foundation of the Leuven Collegium Trilingue as an incentive both to examine the general context in which institutes like the Trilingue emerged and—more generally—to assess the overall impact of Greek and Hebrew education in the later Middle Ages and the early modern period. Special attention was directed to the learning and teaching practices and to the general impact the study of these languages exerted on scholarship, science and society.
