Ludwig Friedlander 1824-*
Friedlander studied at the universites of Königsberg and Leipsic from 1841 to 1845. As a JBY he became Professor of classical Philology and Archaeology.
He retired in 1892 to Strasburg, where he was honorary professor at the university. his chief work, “Darstellungen aus der Sittengesch. Rom’s in der Zeit von August bis zum Ausgang der Antonine” (3 vols., 1862-71; 6th ed., 1889-90) is considered one of the most noteworthy philological productions of the nineteenth century (translated into French by Ch. Vogel, Paris, 1865-74, and into Italian and Hungarian). The work is a detailed and vivid portrait of the social life, customs, art, and manners of the first two centuries of the Roman Empire and remains one of the most complete surveys of Roman life and society.
