Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel (HAB)
The Herzog August Bibliothek is an independent research centre of the State of Lower Saxony and it awards fellowships to post-doctoral researchers in order to promote research in the areas of medieval and early modern cultural history.
Together with numerous other collections, the books and manuscripts belonging to the library of Duke August the Younger form the core of the Wolfenbüttel research library. In our role as part of the ongoing international research into the medieval and early modern periods we are permanently adding to our holdings and expanding the possibilities for scholars to access and research them.
The international programme is open to all historically oriented disciplines. Projects should be centered on the historic book and manuscript holdings of the Wolfenbüttel library. Fellows are required to be in residence in Wolfenbüttel for the duration of their fellowship.
