Friedrich Gottlob Haase
Haase studied at the Universities of Halle, Greifswald, and Berlin. In 1834, he obtained an appointment at Schulpforta, but he was suspended and sentenced to six years' imprisonment for identifying himself with the Burschenschaften (students' associations).
He visited Paris, after serving one year of his sentence. Upon his return in 1840, he was appointed professor at the University of Breslau, where he remained until his death. He was undoubtedly one of the more successful teachers of his day in Germany and exercised great influence upon all his pupils.
Haase edited several classic authors:
- Xenophon (1833)
- Thucydides (1840)
- Velleius Paterculus (1858)
- Seneca the philosopher (2nd edition, 1872, not yet superseded)
- Tacitus (1855), the introduction to which is a masterpiece of Latinity
- Conrad Bursian, Geschichte der klassischen Philologie in Deutschland (1883)
- G Fickert, Friderici Haasii memoria (1868), with a list of works
- T Ölsner in Rübezahl (Schlesische Provinzialblatter), vii. Heft 3, Breslau, (1868)
