Holm, Peter Jr.
A Danish divine, born at Moum, Norway, June 6,1706, was educated at the university at Copenhagen, and afterwards lectured at his alma mater. In 1738 he was appointed professor of theology and philosophy, when, in addition to the duties of his chair, he instructed in Greek and Hebrew, and assisted in the revision of the Danish version of the Bible. In 1746 he was promoted to a regular professorship of theology. He died June 9,1777. His writings, which; on account of his excessive labor in the revision of the Bible, were few in number, are mainly in the form of dissertations. A list of them may be found in Adelung's Addenda 2 to Jocher's Gelehrt. Lex. p. 2102. (J. H.W.)
