Chapter Summary

This appendix contains information about the timeline of Athenaeum's professors. In 1997 Willem Frijhoff drew the following conclusion: 'Due to the lack of data regarding students and actual teaching activities the [changing functions] are largely hidden behind the durability of the institution and its body of professors, and their more or less close ties with other lecturers.' This book attempts to answer the question of how the Athenaeum operated on the basis of the 'actual teaching activities' of the professors. For the study of these activities are available a number of Latin sources which have not yet received thorough attention. First are the scholarly correspondences, and in particular that of Vossius. In the correspondences of Nicholas Heinsius and Vossius's son Isaac, some of the Athenaeum's professors are mentioned occasionally. The same is true of the correspondences of Petrus Francius and Jan van Broekhuizen.

Keywords: actual teaching activities; Athenaeum's professors
