Contents Martin Luthers Reise nach Rom : neu datiert und neu gedeutet / Hans Schneider -- Hominis historia naturalis : Georg Forsters Vorlesung von 1786/87 im Zusammenhang seiner Anthropologie / Ludwig Uhlig -- Ein neues Blatt in Eulers Lorbeerkranz, durch Carl Friedrich Gauss eingeflochten / Karin Reich -- Carl Friedrich Gauss und die russische Sprache / Werner Lehfeldt
Summary The first contribution by Hans Schneider is devoted to Luther's journey to Rome, which he undertook while he was still an Augustine monk. In the second article, Ludwig Uhlig studies the largely unexplored anthropological work of Georg Forster. The contribution by Karin Reich focuses on a long-lost essay by Euler, which was rediscovered in 2009. It has been reproduced here in facsimile and subsequently transcribed and analyzed. Werner Lehfeldt's contribution traces the history of Gauss's interest in the Russian language, based on hitherto unresearched documents
