Nachlass von Frau Ursula Magen erweitert unsere Bibliothek

 

Am 29.04.2020 verstarb die Vorderasiatische Archäologin Ursula Magen (geb. 1936), langjährige Mitarbeiterin am Archäologischen Institut der Goethe-Universität Frankfurt. An diesem Institut hatte sie bei Thomas Beran studiert und bei ihm auch 1984 ihre Dissertation mit dem Titel „Assyrische Königsdarstellungen. Aspekte der Herrschaft“ abgeschlossen. Neben vielen fachwissenschaftlichen Artikeln hat sie sich auch mit der Geschichte des Faches in Frankfurt befasst und dazu publiziert.

Frau Magens Erben haben unserem Arbeitsbereich nun ihre umfangreiche Privatbibliothek vermacht, wofür wir uns herzlich bedanken. Die Neuzugänge werden den Bestand unserer Bereichsbibliothek erweitern.
