Young scholars' programmes

Working with rare books in the Bible collection

The Herzog August Bibliothek is dedicated to bringing young scholars into contact with historical sources and making them acquainted with basic research techniques and the facilities of a research institution. For this reason we organize guest seminars that allow university teachers and their students to come to Wolfenbüttel for up to a weeek and work with original printed and manuscript, text and visual sources.

The annual summer course which lasts two weeks is aimed at advanced level and doctoral students.  During their stay in Wolfenbüttel the participants engage in discussions with invited experts on a topic central to medieval or early modern research. 

The Europa Kolleg for pupils (2002-2012) followed a similar format and was directed towards pupils in their final year at German schools abroad.
