In a broad sweep, the Greek Studies treat important moments in Greek history from its beginnings up to the 4th century BC. Working in collaboration with the Old Testament scholar Klaus Seybold from Basle, particular attention is paid first to the comparison with parallel developments in Israel/ Judaea in order to bring out what was characteristic of Greece history. A second focus is placed on the 4th century, with studies assessing Athenian democracy and evaluating the tyrant Dionysius of Syracuse as a precursor of the Hellenistic monarchy. The final three papers on the history of scholarship are devoted principally to Jacob Burckhardt and Ulrich von Wilamowitz-Moellendorff.
