ZUNZ, LEOPOLD (1794-1886).

Jewish scholar in Germany, founder of the Jewish Wissenschaft movement, which introduced scientific methods of research to the study of the Jewish classics and influences Jewish scholarship to this day. Zunz studies in Midrash, liturgy, and medieval religious poetry are still essential for Jewish scholarship in those fields (See also Midrash, Prayer, and Hebrew Literature.)
