Barckhausen, Conrad Heinrich
Barckhausen, Conrad Heinrich a German theologian of the 18th century. He was professor, and later rector of one of the Berlin colleges. He had with his colleague Volckmann an animated controversy on the subject of divine grace, Volckmann advocating universal grace, and Barckhausen maintaining particularism. The title of the work of Barckhausen, which he published under the name of Pacificus Verinus, is Amica Collatio doctrinae de gratia quam vera reformata confitetur ecclesia, cure doctrina quam Volckmannus publici juris fecit (Furth, 1714). The controversy was joined in by several other theologians on both sides; and Barckhausen himself is said to be the author of another work on the subject, published in the German language (Abgenothigte Ehr- und Lehr-Rettung der Reformirten Kirchen ). In 1719, a royal edict of King Friedrich Wilhelm I imposed silence upon both parties. — Herzog, Supplemn. 1:167.
