In Mourning of Prof. Dr. Karl-Theodor Zauzich
In the morning hours of March 23, 2021, our long-time author and editor Karl-Theodor Zauzich passed away in Würzburg at the age of eighty-one. His sudden death leaves a big gap. Karl-Theodor Zauzich was co-founder and since 1971 co-editor of the renowned and in the field unique Journal for Demotic Studies and Coptology Enchoria as well as of the book series Demotic Texts from Dime. Together with Richard Jasnow, he published in 2005 the edition The Ancient Egyptian Book of Thoth. A Demotic Discourse on Knowledge and Pendant to the Classical Hermetica, on the supplementary volume of which he worked with undiminished commitment until the end. It is sad that he did not live to see the publication of this work, which was so dear to him. With Karl-Theodor Zauzich we have lost an important demotist, author and editor and a dear friend. HARRASSOWITZ will honor his memory.
