...to the homepage of the research project "Hebrew Typography in German-Speaking Regions". This project focuses on Hebrew typefaces produced and printed in German-speaking regions from the beginning of the 16th century until 1939.

It explores a variety of printed documents and the information they convey. Without parallel in Europe, the project is further unique because it marks the first time that a systematically scientific method has been applied to the study of Hebrew typography.

In the center of our work, we have created a database in which data is continuously assembled and updated. This database enables us to take a new and extraordinarily comprehensive look at Hebrew printing culture and to understand it as an integral part of German printing culture.
