The Faculty of Philology came into being in 1951 as a result of a division of the Faculty of the Humanities, which existed only for five years. In fact most of the academic disciplines covered by the Faculty had for long been a part of the Faculty of Philosophy and as such have a very long history.

Philology
Philology is the study of language in oral and written historical sources; it is a combination of literary criticism, history, and linguistics. Philology is more commonly defined as the study of literary texts as well as oral and written records, the establishment of their authenticity and their original form, and the determination of their meaning. A person who pursues this kind of study is known as a philologist.
Philology
Philologists, who chase
A panting syllable through time and space,
Start it at home, and hunt it in the dark,
To Gaul, to Greece, and into Noah's ark.
William Cowper, Retirement (1782)
Philology
To live classically and to realize antiquity practically within oneself is the summit and goal of philology.
Friedrich Schlegel, Philosophical Fragments, P. Firchow, trans. (1991) § 147
Philology
BALD heads forgetful of their sins,
Old, learned, respectable bald heads
Edit and annotate the lines
That young men, tossing on their beds,
Rhymed out in love's despair
To flatter beauty's ignorant ear.
All shuffle there; all cough in ink;
All wear the carpet with their shoes;
All think what other people think;
All know the man their neighbour knows.
Lord, what would they say
Did their Catullus walk that way?
William Butler Yeats, The Scholars
