Frauenstadt, Christian Martin Julius

Frauenstadt, Christian Martin Julius a German philosopher, was born April 17, 1813, at, Bojanowo, in the duchy of Posen. He studied theology and philosophy at Berlin and published, in 1838, Die Freiheit des Menschen und die Personlichkeit Gottes, which was followed in 1839 by Die Menschwerdung Gottes nach ihrer Moglichkeit, Wirnklichkeit und Notwendigkeit. In his Studien und Kritiken zur Theologie und Philosophie (Berlin, 1840), he examined the philosophy of religion of Steffen, and with his Schelling's Vorlesungen in Berlin (ibid. 1842), he placed himself in opposition to the Philosophic der Offenbarung. In 1846 he made the acquaintance of Schopenhauer, and became his most ardent admirer. In 1848 he published his Ueber das wahre Verhaltniss der Vernunft zur Offenbarung (dedicated to Schopenihauer), followed by other works in which he advocated more or less the system of his friend, whose works he also edited (Leipsic, 1873-74, 6 volumes; 2d ed. 1877). Frauenstadt died at Berlin, January 13, 1879. See Brockhaus, Conversations-Lexikon (13th ed.), s.v. Zuchold, Bibl. Theol. 1:377. (B.P.)
