A class of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras over the field $\mathcal {K}$ of constants of a universal differential field $\mathcal {U}$ is studied. The simplest case, defined by homogeneous linear differential equations, is analyzed in detail, and those with underlying set $\mathcal {U} \times \mathcal {U}$ are classified.
