Treviranus, Ludwig Georg
(1676-1757), German Reformed
Ludwig Georg Treviranus was born in Speyer on January 6, 1676. He
studied in Heidelberg, and in 1698 became court pastor of the
Prince of Anhalt-Bernburg, in the castle of Schaumburg bei Lahn,
near to the town of Diez. In 1701 he went to Nassau, but three
years later he was invited pastor of Holzappel. In 1708 he settled
in Bremen. He became pastor of St. Paul's Cathedral, and his
sermons attracted many people. He taught cathecism, and was the
first pastor to introduce confirmation and the instruction
preceding it. Although he was an orthodox Calvinist, he was also
influenced by spreading Pietism. He was much attacked because of a
sermon of him published in 1720. He treated the question of
universal salvation in an eirenic mood, in the spirit of the
conciliation between Lutheran and other confessions: by doing so
he won the sharp controversy of the Lutheran Bishop Gerhard Meyer.
He died on July 16, 1757 in Bremen. He was the founder of that
widespread family which gave famous natural scientists and
politicians, many of which played a role in the history of Bremen.
(For example, Gottfried Reinhold T., 1776-1837 coined the word
"biology"; a later Gottfried Reinhold T., 1891-1971 was a minister
of the Republic of Weimar, and a Reichsminister). His popular
works were: Ruhm der Gläubigen in dem Tode Jesu gegen
alle Verdammniss, Röm. 8, 34, 1720. – Lud. Georg Trevirani
… unumgänglich-nothwendige Verthaidigung Seiner a. 1721 über
