Arnkiel (or Arnkil), Trogillits
Arnkiel (or Arnkil), Trogillits a German historian and theologian, studied at Leipsic, Dorpat, and Kiel, and became minister of the Church of Apenrade. In 1672 duke Christian Albin of Hoistein-Gottorp gave to him the superintendence of the Church of which he was already pastor, but Arnkiel lost this position in 1684 by refusing to render homage to Christian V, king of Denmark, who had invaded a part of Holstein and Sleswick. In compensation for this sacrifice, the duke gave to him in 1686 the administration of the churches of the duchy. The peace of 1689 led to his return to Apenrade, when he resumed his ministerial functions, holding them until his death, which occurred in 1713. He wrote, Disputatio de Officio Redemptionis Christi (Kiel, 1668):- Disputatio de Paradiso Terrestri (ibid. eod.):- Tractatus de Philosophia et Schola 'Epicuri (ibid. 1671 ):-Theologische Betrachtung des grossen schreckhaften Cometender A. 1680 und 1681 gesehen ist (Sleswick, 1681).
