Zeitschrift der Deutschen Morgenländischen Gesellschaft
The Deutsche Morgenländische Gesellschaft (German Oriental Society) was founded on 2 October 1845 at Leipzig. The Society's Zeitschrift began to appear in 1847, and is still active at the present time. Its editorial offices have shifted among various German universities; in recent years briefly at Heidelberg, and currently at the University of Berlin. It shares with its 25-year older French counterpart Journal Asiatique a certain dispersion resulting from its all-Asia mandate (not excluding the Turkish and Semitic linguistic areas, and the northern part of Africa), and a definite focus on religion, part of the 19th century heritage of European Sinology in general. Recent emphases have been in a social sciences direction. The journal is not of great consequence for classical Sinology.
