About the project

The edition published here was created in the context of the Sorbian Institute and the TU Dresden project “Sorb knowledge” from 2016 to 2019. The junior research group was funded by the European Social Fund.

This is the first time that a complete German translation of “Statistika łužiskich Serbow” by Arnošt Muka is available. It was created between 2016 and 2019 as part of the ESF project “Sorb Knowledge” at the TU Dresden and the Sorbian Institute Bautzen. The book version published by Muka in 1886 in Bautzen / Budyšin served as the source text. The study originally appeared in three parts in the Maćica Serbska magazine: Part I on Lower Lusatia in 1884, Part II on Prussian Upper Lusatia in 1885, and Part III on Saxon Upper Lusatia in 1886. If you are interested in the original Upper Sorbian text, the corresponding editions of Journal can be accessed as a digitized version.
