About us

The Taubenschlag Foundation was established in 2001 to aid the development of the Polish papyrological milieu at the University of Warsaw and to provide support for scientific research and cooperation with other academic centres in Poland and abroad. An important part of our mission is the publishing of the Journal of Juristic Papyrology and its supplements.

The Foundation is run by scholars from the Department of Roman and Antique Law at the Faculty of Law and Administration and from the Department of Papyrology at the Institute of Archaeology, University of Warsaw.

Our patron, Raphael Taubenschlag (1881-1958), was a distinguished scholar and director of the Chair of Antique Law at the University of Warsaw, who established (together with Prof. Jerzy Manteuffel) the Institute of Papyrology at the Faculty of History and founded the Journal of Juristic Papyrology, published since 1946 until today.
