Sönke Lorenz died 2012-08-08

A few minutes ago I learned via Hexenforschung that Sönke Lorenz, who was extremely important for witchcraft research here in Germany, died 2012-08-08.  
 
The funeral will be 2012-08-14, 10h GMT+2 at Tübingen-Lustnau cemetery.  
 
A German Wikipendia entry on Lorenz is at http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%B6nke_Lorenz . And as of now his university webpage is still available at http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/fakultaeten/philosophische-fakultaet/fachbereiche/ge schichtswissenschaft/seminareinstitute/geschichtliche-landeskunde-und-historische-hilfswissenschaften/mitarbeiter/prof-dr-soenke-lorenz.html

A Reutlinger General-Anzeiger obiit is at http://gea.de/region+reutlingen/tuebingen/soenke+lorenz+mit+68+jahren+gestorben. 2710993.htm .
There Lorenz's witchcraft research activities are mentioned in one sentence only:
Quote:
Die Wissenschaft verliert mit ihm auch einen international renommierten Forscher der abendländischen Hexenverfolgung.
 
 
So I guess I should add a line of my own: Ages ago, when still a rather young student, I went to a (not really big) witchcraft research conference/workshop at Weingarten, and Lorenz (together with Dieter R. Bauer) made this an event where I, back then perhaps even more an outsider to the witchcraft research community than today (if that is possible), at once felt welcome, and could learn a lot in a relaxed and relaxing atmosphere. I'll always remain grateful to him viz. his memory for that.
