Biography

Theodor Möbius (June 22, 1821 Leipzig - April 25, 1890) was a German philologist who specialized in old Norse works.

Biography

He was a son of German mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius. He studied at the Universities of Leipzig (1840–42) and Berlin (1842-43), receiving his doctorate in 1844 at Leipzig. From 1845 to 1861, he was an assistant, then later curator, at the university library. He earned his habilitation at Leipzig in 1852 with the thesis Über die ältere isländische Saga, and in 1859 became a professor of Scandinavian languages and literature there. In 1865, he accepted a similar position at Kiel. He edited many old Norse works.
