Gotha Research Centre of the University of Erfurt

The Gotha Research Centre is an academic institute of the University of Erfurt. It is closely affiliated to the adjacent Gotha Research Library, which holds one of the most significant collections of manuscripts and Early Modern prints in Germany. The Centre is devoted to initiating and promoting research centred on the holdings of the Research Library, including the Early Modern collections and the archive of the Justus Perthes publishing house, one of Europe’s most prominent cartographical publishers in nineteenth and early twentieth century. To pursue this, the Research Centre initiates and supports projects, organizes international conferences, workshops and lectures, as well as offering a stipend programme for researchers from Germany and abroad.
