Borner, Christian Friedrich

Borner, Christian Friedrich a German Protestant theologian, was born Nov. 6, 1683, at Dresden. He studied at Leipsic and Wittenberg. In 1705 he travelled in England and Holland; and in the latter country he purchased a manuscript now known as the Borner Manuscript (q.v.). From England he brought in manuscript the Hypomnesticon of Josephus, which was afterwards printed by T. A. Fabricius. In 1707 Borner was appointed professor of ethics, and in 1708 professor of Greek at Leipsic. In 1710 he was called to the theological chair, and died Nov. 19, 1753. Borner was a voluminous writer, and the titles of his writings fill about five printed pages in Doring, Die gelehrten Theologen Deutschlands. He edited Jacob le Long's Bibliotheca Sacra, seu Syllabus Omnsiumn Fermne Sacrse Scripturce Editionum. ac Versionurm, etc. (Leipsic, 1709): Martin Luther's Works (22 parts fol. 1728-34): — Disserttiones Sacrce, quibus Illustria Oracula Divina Sanctionisque Doctrince Capita. Explicantur (ibid. 1752). See Doring, l.c. i, 134 sq.; Winer, Handbuch der theol. Lit. i, 24, 67, 338, 500, 750. (B. P.)
