Antiken Schriften auf der Spur – Der Papyrologe Wilhelm Schubart (1873–1960)

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Wilhelm's Schubart death on the
9th of August, the 'Papyrussammlung' plans its first small temporary exhibition
with two show cases in the 'Mythologischer Saal' of the 'Neues Museum' (intigrated in
the permanent exhibition). The temporary exhibition will be presented from
the 9th of August 2010 until the 28th of November 2011.
Wilhelm Schubart was the chief curator of the Berlin Papyrus Collection in the
first third of the 20th century. As a professor at the universities of Berlin and
Leipzig, Schubart influenced both education and research in Papyrology and
Ancient History.
The exhibition shows some precious original papyri, one ostracon and one
lead tablet acquired in Egypt by Schubart or published by him. They are
documents of his activities as head of the German Papyrus Cartel and as an
expert for the acquisition of papyri for the collection of Berlin. Furthermore,
the exhibition shows a selection of his publications, both editions of papyri
and books for the general public.
The activities of the chief curator of the Berlin Papyrus Collection, Wilhelm
Schubart, had a lasting impact on, and are even today of immense value for
the Egyptian Museum, German Papyrology and the study of Greco-Roman
antiquity.
Schubart was an esteemed professor at the Universities of Berlin and Leipzig,
shaping decades of training and research in Papyrology and Ancient History.
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his death, a special display case
commemorates his life and work.
