République des Savoirs

Laboratoire transdisciplinaire du CNRS, ENS et du Collège de France


This team was formed so as to continue the work of Marc Fumaroli, Honorary Professor at the Collège de France (†). It stems from the European Institute for the History of the République des Savoirs: Respublica Literaria, founded by Professor Fumaroli in February 2006. It sheds lights on the relations between men and women of letters, scholars, artists and scientists, who have forged the history of Europe despite national particularities and political, economic and religious conflicts. It seeks to rekindle in modernity the spirit of cooperation of the Republic of Letters.
