Fabricius, Christoph Gabriel
Fabricius, Christoph Gabriel a German divine, was born at Shackdorf, in Lusatia, May 18, 1681, and was educated at the University of Wittenberg. He served as pastor at Mulhoritz and other places in Lusatia, and died June 12, 1757. He is noted especially for his bitter opposition to the modern Moravians. He wrote Das entlarvte Herrnhuth (Herrnhut unmasked, Wittenberg, 1743, 4to, and 1749, 8vo); Entdeckte herrnhutische Satirerey (1749, 8vo), in which he seeks to prove that Zinzendorf and the modern Moravians are not the successors of the Bohemian Brethren. — Biog.
