Arnold Luschin (born August 26, 1841 in Lemberg , † December 6, 1932 in Graz , 1873 to 1919 Luschin Ritter von Ebengreuth ) was an Austrian legal historian and numismatist .


Born in Lemberg as the son of a lawyer from Carniola, Luschin grew up in Czernowitz , Zara , Neustadtl , Temesvár , Vienna and Laibach because of his father , who was often transferred. After attending the Ljubljana grammar school from 1855 to 1857, he took his school leaving examination in Temesvár in 1857. He studied law and also German , numismatics, and history in Vienna and Graz, where he lived and worked until his death. In 1864 he went to the judiciary as a legal intern. In 1866 he received his doctorate with a numismatic thesis and took a position in the Grazer Münz- und Antikenkabinett. In 1867 he became an adjunct in the Styrian State Archives in Graz. In 1869 he qualified as a professor for the history of German law in Austria.

For decades Luschin was a professor at the Karl-Franzens-Universität Graz , President of the Board of Trustees of the Styrian State Museum Joanneum , and later also a member for life of the manor house until its dissolution in 1918. Since 1904 he was a corresponding member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences and since 1906 of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences . In 1912 he retired.

A document book of the Innichen Abbey in South Tyrol's Puster Valley , the handwritten Codex diplomaticus Inticensis in two volumes, was left unprinted and has been at the Tyrolean State Museum Ferdinandeum since 1939 . His extensive estate, however, is in the special collection of the Graz University Library and the Styrian State Archives.

He is buried in the St. Leonhard Cemetery in Graz .

In 1936 the Luschingasse in Vienna- Floridsdorf (21st district) was named after him.
