Beurlin Jacob

Beurlin Jacob a German theologian, was born in the year 1520, at Dornstetten. In 1543 he joined the Lutheran Church, was in 1546 pastor at Derendingens and in 1551 doctor and professor of theology at Tubingen. In the same year he was sent by duke Christopher of Wuitemberg, together with Brenz and two others, to the Council of Trent, with the view of having the new creed approved. But, of course, this mission was without any result. After his return he had to use all his influence to harmonize those parties which participated in the Osiandrian controversy, especially in Prussia, Saxony, Worms, and Erfurt. In consideration of his many services, he was appointed in 1561 chancellor of the University and provost of the Stiftskirche at Tubingen. He died in the same year, Oct. 28, at Paris, where he had gone, together with Jacob Andrea and Bidembach, to attend the colloquy of Poissy. He wrote, Enarratio Epistolce Canonicce Joannis: — Liber contra Petrumn a Soto: — Disputatio de .Mediatore Christo: — De Clavibus Regni Coelorum.
