Leibniz in Hannover

His life, his discoveries, his legacy

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646 - 1716) is one of the last great polymaths. Leibniz's ideas of thought and ideas are still found today in science and research. 40 years of his life and work he was connected to Hannover and has left many traces. Thus his extensive estate is one of the greatest cultural riches preserved in Hannover in the Leibniz Archive of the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Library. In 2007, UNESCO introduced the Leibniz correspondence into the World Documentary Register. UNESCO accepted the Leibniz correspondence into the Memory of the World Register in August 2007 as a 'unique testimony of the European republic of scholars in its transition from Baroque to the early Enlightenment.'
