DFG-Project: Indexing of Pieper’s Legacy

Pieper’s legacy of letters, manuscripts and print work had already been archived during his lifetime in the German Literature Archive in Marbach a. Neckar/Germany and was completed after his death. Commencing 2009, this legacy will be made accessible online and will include an electronic index. This project will be financed by the DFG at the request of the German Literature Archive in connection with the Center for Josef Pieper Studies. Among the more recent acquirements of the German Literature Archive are the legacies of Hans Blumenberg and Hans Georg Gadamer.
