It is hard to repulse fire when it is already near to the roof.
With this trifle I want to recommend myself
into the memory of the very noble and erudite Mr. Pápai
Limmer from Zerbst in Anhalt
Motto: There is nothing more outstanding
In Geneva, on June 20, 1719.

Limmer, Carl Philipp
Limmer, Johann Conrad
(active 1708-1719), German students
Johann Conrad Limmer
was one of the respondents of a philosophical dissertation in
Zerbst in 1708: Dissertatio philosophica de cognitione et cultu Dei
naturali. Conradus Philippus Limmerus [praeses]; Johann David
Brodtmann [resp.], Johann Conrad Limmer [resp.]. Servestae, 1708.
– The chairman (praeses) of the same dispute was Conrad Philipp Limmer (1658-1730),
who is recorded as a physician active in Anhalt, Zerbst and
Dessau. He immatriculated at Franeker in September 1678 as “(Cothena-)
Anhaltinus, lit hum”, that is, coming from Köthen, and student of
humanities; then at Leiden on November 16, 1680 as “Anhaltinus,
23, M”, that is, at the age of 23 for learning medicine. He
obtained doctoral degree in 1688 in Altdorf, where he had been
appointed professor in 1686. He published his doctoral
dissertation and some philosophical disputations, like the above
mentioned, and the following one:
Disp. med. inaug. de hydrophobia … Conr. Philip. Limmer.
Altdorfium, 1688. – Diss. philos. de aequalitate et individuo
virtutum comitatu. Conr. Phil. Limmer. def. Ern. de Steinberg,
aut. Servestae, 1710.
The two Limmers wrote in the album of Pápai Páriz in Geneva in
June 1719. Johann Conrad adds to his name "Serv[estinus]
Anhaltinus", that is originating from Zerbst (Servesta) in Anhalt.
We can well admit that they are two sons of the physician and
philosopher Conrad Philipp Limmer that both received a first name
of their father.
