Prof. Dr. Johannes Lipps

Summer Semester 2012

Johannes Lipps – PortraitJohannes Lipps is an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Greek and Roman Art and Archaeology at LMU Munich. He studied archaeology, ancient history, papyrology, epigraphy and numismatics in Marburg, Rome and Cologne, and received his Ph.D. at the University of Cologne for his thesis on the "Basilica Aemilia am Forum Romanum". After working at the German Archeological Institute in Rome for one year as a postdoc, he spent a further year travelling the Mediterranean on a travel grant.

As a Junior Researcher in Residence at the Center for Advanced Studies Johannes Lipps plans to work on reconstructing the stucco ceiling of the oecus of the so-called House of Augustus on the Palatin (in Rome). With this evidence-based project he hopes to throw light on questions about function and significance of the architectural fixtures of the room relating to the house as a whole and in comparison to other residential architecture of the same time.
