Hoffmann, Immanuel born at Tübingen April 16,1710, was appointed archdeacon of Tübingen in 1741, and in 1756 professor of Greek in the university of the same place. He died in 1772. Hoffmann published a number of dissertations; of these, the following are considered the best: Diss. in Oraculum Romans 10:5- 8 (Tüb. 1752,4to): — Diss. de stilo Apostoli Pauli (1757): — Diss. in loca parallela, 2 Pet. 2, 4-17; Jude 5-13 (1762, 4to): — Commentatio in 1 Corinthians 1:19-21 (1766, 4to). He wrote also, but left unpublished, Demonstratio Evangelica per ipsum scripturarum consensum in oraculis ex Vetere Testamento in Novo allegatis declarata, partes 3 (Tübingen, 1773-82, 4to). T. G. Hegelmaier, who edited this work after the decease of the author, prefixed to it a life of Hoffmann, an ana excursus on the right method of interpreting the quotations made from the O.T. in the New. Orme speaks of this work as "full of learning, and in general very judicious." — Kitto, Bib. Cyclop. 2, 318.
