Wissowa studied at the University of Breslau, and in 1886 became a professor at the University of Marburg, and in 1895 a professor at the University of Halle. Wissowa was a specialist in the study of ancient Roman religion. He is remembered today for re-edition of Realencyclopädie der Classischen Altertumswissenschaft, which was an encyclopedia of classical studies started by August Friedrich Pauly (1796-1845) in 1839. In 1890 Wissowa began the new edition, an ambitious project that he anticipated would take ten years to finish. However, it wouldn't be until the 1970s that the last of its 83 volumes was published. Another important work by Wissowa was a 1902 book on Roman religion titled Religion und Kultus der Römer, in which he explores the development of Roman religion, and provides a comprehensive description of its deities and religious practices. Wissowa also published a revision of Ludwig Friedländer's moral history of Rome called Sittengeschichte Roms, worked on Wilhelm Heinrich Roscher's encyclopedia of Greek and Roman mythology, Ausführlichem Lexikon der griechischen und römischen Mythologie and edited the second edition of Marquardt's Römische Staatsverwaltung, vol. iii. (1885). (From Wikipedia)Erwin Rohde** (October 9, 1845 - January 11, 1898) was one of the great German classical scholars of the 19th and early 20th centuries. 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), Tübingen (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. His work, Der Griechische Roman und seine Vorläufer (1876), was considered by Mikhail Bakhtin to be "the best book on the history of the ancient novel", and it is still regarded as one of the greatest "monuments of 19th century classics scholarship in Germany".
