Resource Toolbox

a Lutheran theologian of Germany, was born September 2, 1677, at Hirschau. He studied at Tubingen, was appointed in 1701 deacon at Calw, and in 1704 court chaplain at Stuttgart, but in 1707 he exchanged his position for that of professor of church history and philosophy at the gymnasium there. Here he published Einleitung in die Merkwurdigkeiten der Kirchenhistorie N. Testaments zur Befunderung der Erkenntniss des Reichs Gottes, etc. (1718, 1719, 2 parts). In 1721 he was called as professor of theology to Tubingen, was honored in the same year with the degree of D.D., and succeeded G. Hoffmann as provost of St. George's in 1729. He died May 26, 1747. Besides his Institutiones Theologicae Exegeticodogmaticae (1739), he wrote some very fine hymns. See Moser, Beitrage zu einem Lexico der jetzt lebenden luth. und reform.
