Klausing, Anton Ernst
Klausing, Anton Ernst a German theologian of some note, was born at Hervorden, in Westphalia, April 11, 1729, and educated at the University of Leipzig. He travelled for three years in Holland, Italy, and England, and on his return taught at Leipzig. He died July 6, 1803. Klausing was thoroughly conversant with several modern languages, and besides translations of the Sermons of Sterne, King's Usages in the Greek Church of Russia, a collection of the latest works on the History of the Jesuits in Portugal, etc., he published several valuable theological works. The most important of his original productions are, perhaps, Commentatio super loco Pauli ad Romans 9:23, 24 (Ialae, 1754, 4to): — Historiem controversice recentissimce inter Pontificem Romanum et republicam Genuensem, etc. (Lips. 1765, 4to).
