ISLAMIC NUMISMATICS IN GERMANY 

   A new survey has been published on Islamic Numismatics in 
   Germany.  Edited by Stefan Heidemann, and written in German, 
   "Islamische Numismatik in Deutschland - eine Bestandsaufnahme" 
   had its genesis in 1996, when "all interested directors and 
   researchers of Oriental collections in Germany met in Jena in 
   order to review the history of Islamic numismatics and to 
   coordinate the future research." 

   "In the past Islamic numismatics did not belong either to the 
   core of  Oriental studies nor to the classical numismatics. Its 
   history is marked by frequent ruptures, each standing for a loss 
   of knowledge. The history and their research potential of the 
   collections of the 19th century were hardly known."
