Translation and Commentary of the 'Tübingen Theosophy'

The Research Group on the “Tübingen Theosophy” is currently preparing the first German translation and a commentary (designed to help both in reading and understanding the text) to an oracle excerpt from Late Antiquity called the “Tübingen Theosophy”. The only copy of this philologically as well as philosophically challenging text is by now kept safe in the University Library of Tübingen. Translation and commentary are currently being developed in teamwork and are to be published in 2017 at Anton Hiersemann Verlag (Stuttgart).
