Leopold Zunz (1794-1886) was the founding father of the "Wissenschaft des Judentums," an intellectual movement that originated among Jewish academics in Germany in the early 1900s. His pamphlet 'Etwas über die rabbinische Literatur' ('Something about Rabbinic Literature'), published in 1818, marked the official start of this new, academic, approach to the traditional Jewish literature. He co-founded the Verein für Cultur und Wissenschaft der Juden in 1819, and its journal, the Zeitschrift für die Wissenschaft des Judentums. Besides offering a revolutionary new approach to the study of Jewish literature and history, Zunz aimed at reforms in Jewish liturgy and strived for political and cultural recognition of Jews in German society. Die gottesdienstlichen Vortrage der Juden deals with biblical interpretation and homiletics from the Bible up to his own time. It is still a standard work on this subject. "[Zunz's] researches served as the foundation and the example for the "Science of Judaism."(Nachum Glatzer in Encyclopaedia Judaica) "I know of no Jewish scholar in modern times who does not revere in him the master" (Louis Ginzberg, Introduction to the first volume of Ginze Schechter)
