Ladies and Gentlemen,

on the occasion of the 400th birthday of Christian Mentzel we cordially invite you to his hometown Fürstenwalde! The cultural-historical colloquium is dedicated to the life’s work and legacy of Christian Mentzel.

Since 2019, the Christian Mentzel Author Team (CMA) has been researching the life and work of the botanist, physician and sinologist and is now presenting new findings in conjunction with an exhibition at the Museum Fürstenwalde. The colloquium is dedicated to the entire spectrum of Mentzel research:

  • Mentzel’s origins and education
  • Mentzel’s work as a botanist, electoral personal physician and sinologist
  • Mentzel’s commitment as an academician and author.

The ceremony will be musically accompanied by students of the Gymnasium Bernhardinum Fürstenwalde/Spree and virtual participation is possible.

We ask for registration until May 15, 2022 to the above contacts or via website.
