In 1921, the Corpus Hellenisticum was established at Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg by Ernst von Dobschütz (1870–1934). The project is devoted to a wide area of research within Hellenistic religious and cultural history, spanning the time from the fourth century BCE into the early Middle Ages. The approach is interdisciplinary, pursuing research questions in traditional classical studies, Jewish studies as well as in individual disciplines within in Biblical and classical studies. The central focus of research lies on sources relevant for the interpretation of Biblical texts, including both inscriptions and manuscripts.
Researchers not only collect, edit and interpret sources, both inscriptions and manuscripts, but also present sources relevant for the exegesis of the Old and the New Testament anew (e.g., New Wettstein). The chief goal consists in the publication of results for the professional guild, for students and for the wider public. This includes the edition and further analysis of ancient sources in databases and other electronic resources.
