Cruciger Caspar

Cruciger Caspar, one of the most faithful and useful of Luther's coadjutors in the Reformation, was born at Leipsic Jan. 1:1504, of religious parents, who took pains with his education. In his sixteenth year he embraced the doctrines of the Reformation, and about 1521 he began to study theology at Wittenberg with Luther and Melancthon. He became profoundly skilled in Hebrew. In 1524 he was called to, Magdeburg, and there taught with great success till 1527, when he returned to Wittenberg, where he lectured on the Scriptures, and aided Luther in his translation of the Bible. He was very expert in shorthand writing, and to this faculty we are indebted for many of Luther's precious remains. He died at Wittenberg Nov. 16, 1548. His letters may be found in the Corpus Reformatorum. — Middleton, Evang. Biog.; Adam, Vitae Theologorum; Piper, Evangel.
