The University Library of Erlangen-Nürnberg holds about 500 Hebraica from the 16th to the 18th century. The most precious pieces originate from the personal library of Johann Christoph Wagenseil (1663-1705), Professor of Oriental Languages and Canonical Law. In 1708 this library was acquired by the University of Altdorf.
During the next few years the most famous Hebrew and Yiddish manuscripts and printings will be digitized and made accessible online.
