While there is a long tradition of Iranian Studies in Germany, only a few universities have their own Iranology departments. On the following pages you will find an overview of the history of Iranian Studies in Berlin, based on Professor Macuch’s contribution to the Kleine Wissenschaftsgeschichte der Freien Universität Berlin. For information about the history of Iranian Studies at other universities, please consult the links on the right-hand side of this page.
We also recommend reading Alberto Cantera’s interesting contribution to the (pre)history of Iranian Studies in his Zur Pahlavi-Übersetzung des Avesta (see Iranica 7).
