List of Classical Archaeologists at the University of Rostock

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the list of classical archaeologist at the University of Rostock all university teachers are classical archeology collected, at the University of Rostock taught and teach. As a rule, this includes all regular university professors who were allowed to give lectures, i.e. who had completed their habilitation .

Classical archeology broke away from classical philology in Rostock in 1881 when Gustav Körtes was appointed to a newly established chair . Until Gottfried von Lücken retired , the subject was represented for more than 60 years by not infrequently well-known specialist representatives in Rostock. In the GDR, however, the subject quickly lost its importance and for a long time Konrad Zimmermann was the only representative of a subject that had become dependent. It was not until 1992 that Zimmermann became a full professor and Classical Archeology became independent again alongside Classical Philology and Ancient History in the Heinrich Schliemann Institute for Classical Studies .

The first column shows the name of the person and their life data, the second column shows the entry into the university, and the third column shows the departure. Column four names the highest position achieved at the University of Rostock. At other universities, the corresponding lecturer may have made an even more extensive scientific career. The next column lists special features, the career path or other information relating to the university or institute. The last column shows pictures of the lecturers, which is currently difficult due to the image rights.
