We report on first spectropolarimetric observations of solar prominences made at THEMIS. Hereafter we shall emphasis on the preliminary analysis of Hei D3 full-Stokes observations. Our measurements clearly show manifestations of both the Hanle and Zeeman effects. More generally, we demonstrate the very favourable performances of the THEMIS multi-line spectropolarimetric mode for further new investigations of the magnetic field in solar prominences.
