The “Schriftenreihe wissenschaftlicher Abhandlungen des Leo Baeck Instituts” is the leading series in the field of German-Jewish history. The first volume was published in 1959; since then over 70 monographs and edited volumes have been published in the series.

The Schriftenreihe covers the period between the Enlightenment and the Modern Era with a special focus on European history of the 19th and early 20th centuries; it includes classic approaches to social and political history as well as intellectual history, cultural history and gender studies. Examples are “Der veränderbare Körper” by Daniel Wildmann (2009), which explores Jewish identity, physicality and masculinity in the late German Empire; “Die Geburt der Literatur aus der Aggada” by Johannes Sabel (2010); and “Weimar in Amerika – Leo Strauss’ Politische Philosophie” by Stephen Steiner.
