Luc COURTOIS. — This brief introduction sheds light on the meaning of the present collection of studies devoted to the development of the teaching of oriental languages and, more broadly, of orientalism, within the Catholic University of Louvain since 1834…
Leo KENIS. — The Catholic University of Louvain, restored in 1834, provided for a limited number of courses in oriental languages at the Faculty of Theology. From 1836 to 1875, these courses were given by the Dutch theologian Jan-Theodoor Beelen (1807-1884), professor of Sacred Scripture…
Pierre-Maurice BOGAERT. — In the reviving Université catholique de Louvain (1835), the bishops of Belgium appointed to the chair of Biblical exegesis at the Faculty of Theology a Dutch priest, trained in philology according to the German scholarship, Jean-Théodore Beelen (1807-1884).

Christophe VIELLE. — Indology is an ancient tradition at the University of Louvain. The first Sanskrit course in Belgium was initiated there in 1841 by Félix Nève (1816-1893), a teaching that Charles de Harlez (1832-1899) continued and developed from 1877 onwards…
Andrea Barbara SCHMIDT, Lucas VAN ROMPAY. — The origin of Syriac studies in Louvain can be traced back to the work of Andreas Masius and to the printing house of Plantin in the 16th century, but it is only in the 19th century, with the appointment of Joannes Theodorus Beelen (1807-1884) to the chair of Sacred Scriptures (1936), that the foundation was laid for Syriac as an academic discipline…
Christian CANNUYER. — After being initiated in 1891 by A. Hebbelynk at the School of Free Graduate Studies, the teaching of Coptic was incorporated three years later into the programm of the Faculty of Theology. In 1898, it became entrusted to P.

Willy F. VANDE WALLE. — In contrast to the study of the Ancient Near East and the Christian Orient, the study of the Far East was a relative newcomer at the University of Louvain.

Luc COURTOIS. — The present contribution is devoted to the figure of Paulin Ladeuze (1870-1940), whose orientalist activity took place in three stages : the doctorate at the Catholic University of Leuven, with a thesis in the field of oriental cenobitism (1892-1898) ; the professorship, during which the young researcher devoted himself mainly to patrology and neo-testamentary exegesis (1898-1909); and finally the rectorate…
