Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Erwin Rohde (October 9, 1845 - January 11, 1898) was one of the great German classical scholars of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Grave in Heidelberg, Rohde was born in Hamburg and was the son of a doctor. Outside of antiquarian circles, Rohde is known today chiefly for his friendship and correspondence with fellow-philologist Friedrich Nietzsche. The two were students together in Bonn and Leipzig, where they were studying philology taught by Friedrich Wilhelm Ritschl. In 1872, Rohde became a professor at the University of Kiel. He later was professor in Jena (1876), Tubingen (1878) and finally Heidelberg, where he died in 1898 after suffering from a gradual decline in health. His Psyche (1890-1894) remains a standard reference work for Greek cult practices and beliefs related to the soul.show more
