Historian and essayist Marc Fumaroli was a professor at the Collège de France and a member of the Academie Française (1995). In recognition of his signal contribution to the history of French and European literature, the Collège de France created a chair in rhetoric for him. The subjects in literature and the arts he addressed, together with his consumate literary style and his acute analysis of both the higher educational system and government cultural policy, secured his election to the French Academy. A native of Marseille, Dr. Fumaroli is the author of over 150 articles and more than 20 books, including Heros et orateurs, Rhetorique e dramaturgie corneliennes (1990); L'Etat culturel. Essai sur une religion moderne, (1992); Trois institutions litteraires (1994); and more recent studies of Poussin (2001), Richelieu (2002) and Chateaubriand (2004). Marc Fumaroli was elected to the American Philosophical Society in 1997. He died June 24, 2020 in Paris, France at the age of 88.

Sabine MacCormack was a historian of the Roman empire, late antiquity and the early modern Spanish world, with a special interest in the peoples and cultures of the Andes. She had worked on the reasons for, and consequences of, political and religious change, focusing on the impact of Christianity in the Roman Mediterranean and in the Andes. Another interest was the interrelation between word and image, language and visual culture in the Roman empire and early modernity. She worked on the impact of the classical tradition as formulated in Spain and of memories of the Inca empire on the development of early modern political cultures in the Andes. Her interest in teaching was focused on the nature of knowledge: on what we think we know, and why, and what we might actually know. She was the Theodore M. Hesburgh Professor of Arts and Letters at the University of Notre Dame at the time of her death June 16, 2012, at the age of 71. , Dr. MacCormack had previously taught at Stanford University and the University of Michigan. She earned B.A. and D.Phil. degrees from Oxford University.
