Hocheisen, Johann Georg

Hocheisen, Johann Georg a German theologian, born at Ulm in 1677, was educated at the University of his native place and at Tübingen and Wittenberg. At the last school he at first devoted his time mainly to the study of philosophy, but afterwards changed to the study of theology. He next went to Hamburg, where his acquaintance with the great Fabricius led him to a more thorough study of Greek and Hebrew. In 1705 he was made M.A. at Wittenberg, and immediately began there a course of lectures which procured for him an adjunct professorship in the philosophical department, he entering at the same time as a candidate of theology. In 1709 he was called as professor of Hebrew to the gymnasium at Breslau, where he died in 1712. Hocheisen contributed largely to the learned periodicals of his day. Of his published works the most important are De Hebraeo-rum vocalium. officio et valore in constituenda syllaba (Viteb. 1705, 4to): — De Deismo in Cartesianismo deprehenso (ibid. 1708, 4to): — De Deismo in Theosophia deprehenso, contra Westphalun novatorem (ibid. 1709, 4to). Some take him to be the author (though this is unlikely) of the first letter in Vertrauter Brieefiechsel zweierguten Freunde 5. Wesen d. Seele (1713 and 1734, 8vo), in which the soul is regarded only as a mere mechanism of the bodv. — Doiring, Gelehrt. Theolog. Deutschlands, 1, 744; Adelulg's Jocher, Gelehrt. Lex. Add. 2, 2029. (J. H. W.)
