HävErnick, hEinrich aNdreas cHristoph
Hävernick, Heinrich Andreas Christoph a German theologian, was born at Kroplin, in Mecklenburg, in 1805. He studied at Halle, and was one of the two students whose notes on the theological lectures of Wegscheider and Gesenius were used to institute a trial against those prominent champions of Rationalism. At the University of Berlin he closely attached himself to Hengstenberg. In 1834 he established himself as privatdocent at Rostock, and in 1841 he became ordinary professor of theology at Königsberg. He died in 1845 at New Strelitz. The exegetical works of Havernick are counted among the most learned of the orthodox school. The most important of them are Commentar. über das Buck Daniel (Hamburg, 1832): — Mélanges de theologie reforme (Geneva, 1833 sq.): — Handbuch der hist. — krit. Einleitung in das A. T. (Erlangen, 1836-39, 2 vols.; 2nd ed. by Keil, 1849- 54) Neue Krit. Untersuchungen u. das Buck Daniel (Hamb. 1838): — Commentarum Buche Ezekiel; Vorlesungen 2. d. Theologie des A. T. (ed. by Hahn, Frankf. 1848; 2nd ed. by Schultz, Frankf. 1863). Translations: Genesis Introd. to O.T. (Edinb. 1852); Introd. to the Pentateuch (Edinb. 1850).
