Membre d’une ancienne famille noble d’origine allemande, le baron Frédéric de Reiffenberg (1795-1850) s’est distingué dans l’histoire de Belgique pour avoir été le premier à occuper le poste de conservateur de la Bibliothèque royale de Belgique, fondée en 1837. S’il doit notamment ce poste à l’appui qu’il reçut d’amis haut placé, il convient de rappeler que la nomination à la direction de cette institution fut pour lui une belle opportunité pour quitter Liège et, plus spécifiquement, la charge de professeur d’histoire du Moyen Âge qu’il occupait à l’Université depuis le 6 décembre 1835. En effet, au cours de l’année 1836, son parcours professionnelle fut entaché d’un scandale sans précédent qui le contraint à démissionner : une accusation de plagiat formulée par l’un de ses éminents collègues, Edouard de Lavalleye (1811-1869). La présente communication sera l’occasion de revenir sur cette affaire et son traitement médiatique. [less ▲]

In the years 1565-1566, the Low Countries were shaken by a vast politico-religious revolt directed against Philip II. In response to the uprising and misbehaviour of parts of the population, the king established the so-called Council of Troubles, a special court active from 1567 to 1576. This institution was led in its early years by Fernando Àlvarez de Toledo, Duke of Alba and Governor General of the Low Countries. The Council of Troubles had a very close look at the production, the distribution as well as at the possession of books. At the request of the Duke of Alba, inquisitors were sent during the spring and summer of 1569 in various provinces of the Low Countries still under Spanish rule to examine bookshops and find out heretical books. These archives offer a sort of radioscopy of the book market of the Low-Countries on the eve of the Counter-Reformation. We will focus here on the situation of the city of Mons, in the county of Hainaut. The book lists written by the Duke of Alba’s emissaries describe more than 1600 books. The descriptions of the books found there are extremely high: names of authors, title, place and date of printing. The care and rigour shown by the notary in the performance of his task make this source a valuable document to study the book market in Hainaut in the second third of the 16th century and, more specifically, to study the medical book market. We will be able to discover which authors and which genres are preferred, the importance of the scientific literature compared with the popular literature, and the origin of these books. [less ▲]

Theodoricus Martinus Alostensis published the editio princeps of Thomas More’s Utopia at the end of the year 1516 in Louvain. Why did the English humanist give his text to this printer and not to someone like Johann Froben in Basel or Jodocus Badius Ascensius in Paris? In fact, Thomas More didn’t choose Theodoricus Martinus randomly, but had been guided by his friend Erasmus, who was living in Brabant at that time and was working directly with this printer. The humanist from Rotterdam then instructed his circle to monitor closely the printing of the text, to do the proofreading and to direct the publishing. He involved in this process his friend Petrus Aegidius – clerk of city of Antwerp and close friend of both More and Erasmus – and Gerardus Geldenhower. By studying the correspondence of Erasmus, we will first rebuild the process of printing the first edition of the Utopia. This will also be an opportunity to discover the role and the importance of a network of humanists within the workshop of a printer. Without this, Theodoricus Martinus would never have been able to build his identity as a “printer humanist” and to transform his workshop into one of the leading places for the diffusion of humanism in the Low Countries in the first decades of the 16th century.
