Rupert Rainer studied Greek and Latin at the University of Innsbruck. He graduated 2021 with a Diploma thesis about the neo-ancient Greek poem Chariton Polis – The city of Graces (1897), a praise on the city of Graz by the Austrian philologist Ludwig Mayr composed in Homeric Greek. At the LBI he intensifies his researches on the Chariton Polis for a critical edition of the poem, focusing not only on the text of the Chariton Polis, but also on its relation to ancient and modern literary traditions as well as on the circumstances of its production and its reception.
