Julius Fürst (1805-1873), was a Jewish German orientalist. Fürst was a distinguished scholar of Semitic languages and literature. During his years as chairman of the department of Oriental languages and literature at the University of Leipzig (1864-1873), he wrote major works on literary history and linguistics. His most important scholarly works include the Bibliotheca Judaica (Leipzig, 1849-1863), Kultur and Literaturgeschichte der Juden in Asien (Cultural and literary history of Jews in Asia, 1849), several dictionaries as well as numerous contributions to the periodical "Der Orient" (Leipzig 1840-1851), whose chief editor he was. "Der Orient" was mainly devoted to scientific study of the language, literature and history of the Jews.
