Samuel Krauss

Samuel Krauss (Ukk, February 18, 1866 - Cambridge, June 4, 1948) was professor at the Jewish Teachers' Seminary, Budapest, 1894-1906, and at the Jewish Theological Seminary, Vienna, 1906-1938. He moved to England as a refugee and spent his last years at Cambridge.

He was a contributor to the Jewish Encyclopedia as S. Kr.[1]

"Professor Krauss's scholarship encompassed every area of ancient Judaism."[2] In 1910, he became a pioneer in Talmudic archaeology with the publication of Talmudische Archäologie, which was reprinted in Hebrew in 1924.[3] In 1998, his 1922 study of the ancient synagogue, Synagogale Altertümer, was still considered essential reading on the topic.[2]

In 1935 he published a comprehensive and detailed study of Biblical names of ninety eight then modern nations.[4]
