Eugen Ludwig Bormann (born October 6, 1842 in Hilchenbach ; † March 4, 1917 in Klosterneuburg ) was a German ancient historian and epigraphist .
After Schulpforta's visit to Bonn, the son of a judiciary studied with Otto Jahn and Friedrich Ritschl and in Berlin with August Böckh , Eduard Gerhard and especially Theodor Mommsen . After receiving his doctorate in Berlin in 1865, Bormann stayed until 1869 at the suggestion of Mommsen for epigraphic studies in Italy, especially in Rome. From 1870 he was a teacher at the Gray Monastery high school in Berlin. From 1870 to 1871 he took part in the Franco-German War . He rose from vice sergeant to lieutenant and received the Iron Cross . In the summer semester of 1881, with Mommsen's support, he was appointed full professor of ancient history and classical philology at the Philipps University of Marburg as successor to Benedikt Niese . In 1885 Bormann went to the University of Vienna as a professor of ancient history and epigraphy . There he succeeded Otto Hirschfeld and further expanded the archaeological-epigraphic seminar founded by him. In 1914 he was retired.
Bormann was mainly active in the field of Latin epigraphy and was one of the most important collaborators in the early phase of the Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum , for which he edited several volumes. During his time in Vienna he also dealt with the Roman Limes in Austria. Bormann was a member of numerous academies of science, including in Berlin (since 1902 a corresponding member) and Vienna.
He was buried in the Upper City Cemetery in Klosterneuburg. In 1932 in Vienna- Donaustadt (22nd district) the Eugen-Bormann-Gasse was named after him.
