Tracking Ancient Writing.
The papyrologist Wilhelm Schubart (1873-1960)

Egyptian Museum and Papyrus Collection
09.08. - 28.11.2010

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
Schubart was an esteemed professor at the Universities of Berlin and Leipzig,
shaping decades of training and research in Papyrology and Ancient History.

Berlin / Germany
Sanctuaries, Papyri and Winged Goddesses.
The Archaeologist Otto Rubensohn

18 February 2010 to 15 August 2010

In 2006, Dr. phil. Fortunatus Schnyder-Rubensohn donated the estate of his father-in-law, the classical archaeologist Otto Rubensohn to the Jewish Museum Berlin. Rubensohn¬'s excavations and his academic work are intrinsically connected with Berlin¬'s collection of papyri and with the study of the ancient history of the Greek island of Paros. A symposium and a Cabinet Exhibition at the Jewish Museum will honor the life and work of this Jewish scholar, who is still highly recognized by academics in his field.

Born and raised in Kassel, Otto Rubensohn (1867-1964) wrote his dissertation in Strasbourg under the supervision of Adolf Michaelis. He worked at the German Archaeological Institute in Athens from 1897 to 1899, and excavated the sanctuaries of Apollo and Asclepius on the island of Paros, where he also erected a museum for his many findings. From 1901 to 1907, Rubensohn led the papyrus enterprise of the Berlin Royal Museums. Aside from purchasing important papyri, his excavations uncovered significant findings, among them a prehistoric cemetery in Abusir el Melek, the so-called Taurinus archive in Eshmunen and the Aramaic Papyri on the island of Elephantine. In 1909, he was appointed director of the newly-established Pelizaeus Museum in Hildesheim, which he oversaw until 1915. In the following years until his retirement in 1932, he taught at a Gymnasium (secondary school) in Berlin, and continued to pursue his archaeological research.

After the National Socialists came to power, Rubensohn became increasingly isolated and expose to growing discrimination. In March 1939 he fled with his wife to Switzerland. There he continued his research in Basel and at the age of 94 published his most important book, 'Das Delion von Paros.¬"
