by Anne TIHON, Anne-Marie DOYEN-HIGUET, in Luc COURTOIS (ed.), Les études orientales à l’Université de Louvain depuis 1834 (Histoire, 12), Brussels, 2021.

This paper traces the history of the « Louvain School » specialized in the edition of ancient scientific texts, especially works written in Greek from the Hellenistic period to the end of the Byzantine Empire in the field of the exact sciences. Anne Tihon describes the career and work of the founder of the school, Canon Adolphe Rome (1889-1971) and of his successor, Abbé Joseph Mogenet (1913-1980). The paper insists on the novelty of their approach as well as on the dramatic circumstances in which they accomplished their work. Anne-Marie Doyen evokes their successors, particularly André Allard (1937-2014), and the other fields explored, natural sciences and pseudo-sciences.
