Kopke, Adam

Kopke, Adam.

a German fanatic, who flourished in the first half of the 18th century as pastor at Walmo, was an ardent follower of Dippel (q.v.), and, with Hagenbach (Church Hist. 18th and 18th Cent., transl. by Dr. Hurst, i, 168 sq.), we are in doubt what place to assign any of Dippel's followers; he was measurably a Mystic, yet he can neither be definitely classed with them nor with any of the sects known as Pietists or Rationalists, fanatics or scoffers, Mystics or Illuminists. He wrote Histor. Nachricht v. Caspar Schwenkfeld (Prenzlau, 1745, 8vo): — Wegweiser zum gottlichen Leben, etc. (ibid, 1744, 8vo):-Die reinigende Kraft des Gottes-Blutes Jesu Christi (ibid, 1744, 8vo). See Kraft, Theol. Bibliothek, i, 262; Walch, Comp. hist. eccl. recentiss. p. 233 sq.; Fuhrmann, Handwirterb. d. Kirchengesch. ii, 591.
