Hobbhahn, Johann Wilhelm
Hobbhahn, Johann Wilhelm a German theologian, was born at Ochsenberg March 8,1665; studied at the universities of Ulm, Strasburg, and Tübingen, and entered the ministry in 1690. In 1716 he was appointed superintendent over a number of churches, and pastor at Knittlingen, where he died in 1727. Hobbhahn wrote, mainly under fictitious names, a number of excellent polemics against the Romish Church and the Syncretists. Of these, his Obsiegende Wahrheit, and Apologet. Schauplatz d. triumphirenden Wahrheit, against Eust. Eisenhut; Histor. theolog. Prüfung d. rom. Priester Weihe, against Mandle; and especially Angetastete Juzngfer-Ehe d. lutherischen Kirche, which gave him much trouble, and endangered his life, are considered the best. — Jicher, Gelehrt.
