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."
