The late 18th and early 19th century presented an age of exploration in German Academia. Scholars travelled the world in order to explore quite often financed by local princes in Germany who wanted to excell with their collections and outshine their neighbouring principalities. 
Inspired by his famous study collegue Alexander von Humboldt and his travels to South America, the scholar Ulrich Jasper Seetzen from the town of Jever convinced the prince of Gotha in Thuringia to provide him with funds to travel to Arabia and buy objects and manuscripts. 
The presentation will especially concentrate on the years Seetzen spend in Cairo and give an overview of the still understudied Gotha collection which hosts a lot of research possibilities for 
international scholars.
