Huberinus (Huber), Kaspar

Huberinus (Huber), Kaspar a Bavarian monk, afterwards a convert to Protestantism, was born near the close of the 15th century. He became a Protestant preacher in 1525 at Augsburg, and was appointed to a church at that place in 1527. He was a zealous opponent of the Anabaptists, who were quite numerous at Augsburg about that time, and he also engaged in the Berne disputations on the ministration of the sacrament. He was in favor of the Lutheran doctrine on this point, and in 1535 he went to Wittenberg, to consult with Luther personally, and to regain for Augsburg the celebrated Urbanus Rhegius (q.v.). Huberinus was also actively engaged in introducing the Reformation in the Pfalz, and in the territory of Hohenlohe. In 1551 he returned to Augsburg as preacher, but as he alone of the Protestant preachers at Augsburg had accepted the Interim (q.v.), he was obliged to leave the city in 1552, and died of grief at Oehringen Oct. 6,1553. Huberinus wrote quite extensively; among other worls, we have from his pen Tröstlicher Sermon — v.d. Urstende Christi (1525) — Schlussreden

v.d. rechten Hand Gottes u. 1. Gewalt Christi (1529) etc. See Keim, Schwseb. Ref. Gesch, p. 273,278; Döllinger, Reformation, 2, 576; Herzog, Real Encyklopadie 6, 296; Theol. Univ. Lex. p. 372; Pierer, Univ. Lex. 8, 569. (J. H. W.)
