Beyer, Hartmann

Beyer, Hartmann a Lutheran theologian of Germany, was born at Frankfort-on-the-Main, September 30, 1516. He studied at Wittenberg under Luther and Melanchthon. In 1545 he was called to his native place as preacher. At that time Calvinism flourished at Frankfort, and yet Beyer at last succeeded in founding a Lutheran Church in 1554. Not only against the Calvinists, but also against the Romani Catholics, Beyer showed his dislike. His sermons) comprising forty-nine volumes, are still preserved in the city library at Frankfort. He died August 11, 1577. See Steiss, in Herzog's Real- Encyklop. s.v. (B.P.)
