Anpassungsstrategien der späten mitteleuropäischen Monarchie am preußischen Beispiel 1786 bis 1918

For some years now, research has turned increasingly to the history of the European monarchy.

For the first time, the research and edition project “Controversia et Confessio” systematically reappraises the theological controversies triggered by the Augsburg Interim and the Leipzig Alternative Draft of 1548, which could only be largely resolved by the large-scale theological unification of the Conoria Formula and the Konkordienbuch 1577/80. In these disputes, an early modern “culture of...

Ceiling and mural paintings are constitutive elements in the design of baroque interiors.

Kommentierung der Fragmente der griechischen Komödie

This project is an important contribution to Greek philology and closes to some extent a gap in understanding literature of the ancient world which contributes to the history of education as well. Large parts of Greek literature are preserved as fragments rather than complete texts, especially from archaic, classical and Hellenic times. This is true not only for the Pre-Socratic and Hellenic...

Novum Testamentum Graecum. Editio Critica Maior

Texts from the New Testament are preserved in their Greek original language in approx. 5500 manuscripts. It can be assumed that actually no copy is identical with another.

Patristik: Dionysius Areopagita

The name of Dionysius the Areopagite refers to the Athenian, who according to Acts 17:34 was converted by St. Paul’s speech on the Areopagus and then followed him.

The manuscript tradition is a...
