Collegium Trilingue

Local nameCollegium Trilingue
LocationLeuven, Belgium

The Collegium Trilingue, often also called Collegium trium linguarum, or, after its creator Collegium Buslidianum, was founded in 1517 under the patronage of the humanist, Hieronymus van Busleyden.

The College, in fact inspired by Erasmus who was a friend of Busleyden, was inaugurated in September 1518.

It was not formally part of the University of Leuven, but had been founded by a group of humanists who wanted to spread humanism and the revival of the classics, which were not popular at the time at the medieval University of Leuven. They promoted the teaching of the three ancient languages: Latin, Greek and Hebrew.
