Kliipfel, Emanuel Christoph
Kliipfel, Emanuel Christoph, a German theologian, was born Jan. 29, 1712, at Hattenhofen, in Wirtemberg, and educated at Tiibingen. In 1741 he became pastor at Geneva of a German Lutheran church, and in 1745 he became the instructor and travelling preacher of the king of Saxony, and resided for some time at Paris. On his return to Saxony he was promoted, and finally, in 1752, became one of the highest dignitaries in the Church of Saxony. He died Nov. 21, 1776. Although a superior scholar and a ready writer, Klupfel has left us only two small contributions to theological literature: Dissert. de nominibus Hebrmis acppellativis Aleph praeformativo (Tubingen, 1733, 4to): — Bedeenk uber die Frage; ob die Ehe mit des Bruders Wittive erlaubt sei (Gotha, 1752, 8vo). -Dring, Gelehrte Theolog. Deutschlands, ii, 123 sq.
