The Academy of Marseille , officially the Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters of Marseille , is a French learned society based in Marseille . It was founded in 1726 and includes those in the city involved in the arts , letters , and sciences .
The Academy of Marseille was created by letters patent of Louis XV in August 1726, which stated in particular that the number of members would be limited to twenty. The founding document further stated that all twenty members must live in Marseille . However, Jean-Pierre Rigord said that Henri de Belsunce also be offered membership. This was rectified in 1730 when Joseph-Felix Gravier resigned from the Academy and was not replaced.
