History of the magazine
The magazine was originally founded in 1827 by Barthold Georg Niebuhr as the Rheinisches Museum for Philology, History and Greek Philosophy , initially in connection with the parallel Rheinisches Museum für Jurisprudenz ( JC Hasse ). But after just three issues, the magazine was discontinued in 1829. A second attempt at founding in 1832/33 under the shorter title Rheinisches Museum für Philologie was somewhat more successful. The magazine could appear for six years until 1838/39. The third foundation brought the final breakthrough. Since 1842 the magazine has appeared in a new series without interruption. Up to 1887 the magazine was published partly (without the characterization) as a (Rheinisches) Museum für Philologie .
The magazine was published by Eduard Weber at the Bonn publishing house until 1839; today it is published four times a year by JD Sauerländer's publishing house , Bad Orb. The Rheinische Museum is now at the Department of Classics at the University of Cologne settled. The editors are René Nünlist and Peter Schenk in conjunction with Bernd Manuwald , Carl Werner Müller , Markus Schauer , Stephan Schröder and Clemens Zintzen . Articles can appear in German , English , French , Italian and Latin . The contents are broad and can include the history and cultural history of classical antiquity , but are primarily limited to philological topics. In addition to the regular editions, supplements, special issues and registers appear.
Alongside Philologus (1846), Mnemosyne (Netherlands, 1852, today primarily with English-language articles), Hermes (1866), Wiener Studien (1879) and Gymnasium (1890), it is one of the most important and traditional journals in the field of Classical philology in German-speaking countries, making it one of the most internationally respected periodicals in the field.
The essays and mishaps of the Rheinisches Museum are available online in a database of the University of Cologne . The years 1827–1999 were digitized with a project funded by the German Research Foundation, the other years are made available with a moving wall of two years.
