Album Academicum

The Album Academicum gives a digital overview of the names of all professors at the University of Amsterdam and its predecessor, the Athenaeum Illustre, since 1632 to the present.

In addition to personal details and information about the respective professor’s academic background and position, the Album also provides – when possible – a portrait. The Album Academicum provides valuable insight into the development of the University. Growth and stagnation, the development and popularity of certain subject areas, the role of women in academic research: all of these aspects are reflected in the list.
