Frankenberg, Abraham Von

Frankenberg, Abraham von a German nobleman, an adherent of Jacob Bohme, was born June 24, 1593. He studied at Breslaut, where he became acquainted with Bohme's writings. The latter's philosophy influenced him so much that he now betook himself entirely to mystic contemplations, and in order to do this with greater effect, he retired to his countryseat. He died June 25, 1652. For his writings and hymns see Arnold, Ungarteiische Kirchen- und Ketzer-Historie, 2:410 sq.; Wezel, Hymnopographia, 4; Weimarisches Jahrbuch, 1854, pages 157-160; Jocher, Allgemeines Gelehrten-Lexikon, s.v.; Koch, Geschichte des deutschen Kirchenliedes, 3:287 sq.
