Biographical and scientific notes about Mark Lidzbarski (1868-1928): A translation from Ludmila Hanisch, Aufzeichnungen von Mark Lidzbarski (1868-1928), edited by Pierre Motylewicz and Ute Pietruschka. Halle-Wittemberg: Universitäts- und Landesbibliothe
In 2015 Ludmilla Hanisch published a study featuring the outcomes of a survey she had conducted in the legacy of Mark Lidzbarski. This legacy is housed in the archive of the Deutsche Morgenländische Gesellschaft in Halle/Saale (Germany) and includes documents and evidence related to both the personal life and academic research of the renowned Semitist. In a terse and fluent style, the author provides an overview of the contents of the legacy interweaved with the life of Lidzbarski. The present translation aims at making this important contribution accessible to a wider audience and represents a tribute to the author, who passed away before it was published.
