Illuminare (KU Leuven) is a research and documentation centre, located in the Leuven University Library. The focus on medieval and early modern art from the Low Countries in a European perspective is facilitated by both research and doctoral projects that are supported by an international network of universities, institutions, and museums. Illuminare conserves and catalogues illuminated manuscripts and carries out art technical research. It examines, through an interdisciplinary approach, the iconology of medieval art. It holds several research archives of renowned art historians, and organises national and international exhibitions.
Illuminare is supported by KU Leuven, the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO), the Belgian Federal Science Policy (Belspo), the Hercules Foundation, the Van der Weyden Chair – Paul & Dora Janssen, the Veronique Vandekerchove Chair of the City of Leuven, the Chair of Medieval Sculpture in the Low Countries and the King Baudouin Foundation.
