Ehinger, Elias

Ehinger, Elias a Lutheran theologian of Germany, was born September 7, 1573. He studied at Wittenberg and Tilbingen, and was in 1597 court-preacher at Albertsberg, in Lower Austria. Being obliged to leave the country on account of intolerance, he went in 1605 to Rothenburg, on the Tauber, was made rector there, and accepted a call in 1607 to Augsburg. In 1629 he had to leave that place also, and went to Schul-Pforta, in Saxony. Being recalled to Augsburg, he stayed. there only a short time, and went in 1635 to Regensburg, where he died, November 28, 1653. He is the author of a large number of writings, of little value for our time. See Jocher, Allgemeines Gelehrten-Lexikon, s.v.; Brucker, Commentarius de Vita et Scriptis Ehingeri (1724). (B.P.)
