The DHGE is making a fresh start after the publication of fascicle 185, final part of tome XXXI. Since 1909, the Dictionnaire was the product of the Éditions Letouzey & Ané. Publishing responsibilities will now be taken up by Brepols.

Brepols (Turnhout), which has been providing us with an online version of the printed dictionary for the past several years, is well known in the world of scientific publishing. While the academic development of our new project remains in the safe hands of both the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and l’Université catholique de Louvain, some important changes have been made which we hope our readers will welcome. To offer a new article to our editorial team, authors can now choose from the following options: 1) an updated or revised version of a previously published lemma (letters A-L); 2) a new article which serves to fill important lacunae in past instalments (letters A-L); 3) new entries comprising the letters M-Z, which were lacking up to now. Each new lemma will be made available online without delay; paper fascicles, assembling the latest new entries, will be published within the year (each fascicle in alphabetical order from A to Z). Articles may be written in either English or French. A limited number will also be published in Spanish, Italian and German. We would also like to bring to your attention that accepted articles will be financially rewarded by Brepols Publishers, as has been the case before.

Our strengthened and rejuvenated editorial team is keenly seeking experts from all over the world to contribute to the dictionary’s time-honoured reputation and high standing: if you want to help us bring older articles up to date, or if you simply want to offer new articles, please contact the editorial staff via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
