Fischer, Jacob Benjamin

Fischer, Jacob Benjamin a Lutheran theologian of Germany, general superintendent of Livonia, who died November 3, 1744, deserves to be mentioned for the great interest he took in having the Bible given to his people in their vernacular. The first Livonian or Lettish Bible was edited by his father, John, who died in 1705. The care of the second edition devolved on Jacob Benjamin, and it was printed at Konigsberg in 1739. (B.P.)
