Opuscula: Volume 2by Moritz Haupt
A prolific philologist of both the German and classical languages, Moriz Haupt (1808–74) enjoyed a successful academic career at the universities of Leipzig and Berlin. As well as founding the Zeitschrift für deutsches Altertum, which is still published, he was a painstaking yet somewhat bold editor of many classical texts. In the years immediately following his death, his shorter works were gathered together in this three-volume collection, edited by fellow philologist Ulrich von Wilamowitz-Moellendorff (1848–1931). Volume 2 (1876) contains the Latin text of forty-two lectures delivered by Haupt twice a year at the University of Berlin between 1854 and 1874. The lectures cover a variety of topics concerning classical texts, philology and literature, including an exposition of the forgeries by Simeon Bosius of the texts of Catullus. This work remains of value to researchers interested in nineteenth-century German classical scholarship.
