  • Descrição: Henri Pirenne (1862-1935) is without any doubt the most eminent Belgian historian. Much research has been carried out on his work and his actions, resulting in, among other things, a classic biography, several source editions and numerous detail studies, even more so since his influence on the development of historiography has recently been attached to the development of his scientific persona. After studying Humanity and Philosophy in Liège, where he promoted in 1883, he was appointed professor in medieval history at the University of Ghent in 1886. Until 1930 he lectured there on the growth of medieval cities, on medieval economy and more specifically on the influence of Islam in the fall of the Roman Empire - and of course also on Belgian history. Fascinated as he was by scientific disciplines such as sociology, economics and psychology, he was the first Belgian historian to expand the borders of his own discipline. His monumental work Histoire de Belgique en his thesis on the influence of islam on (Western) European history have earned him, up untill today, national and international reknown. This article wants to give insight in the development and experiences of that specific thesis, as written down in his Mahomet et Charlemagne, and identified with its author to that extent that it is simply referred to in literature as the Pirenne-thesis.
