Krummacher, Gottfried Daniel
Krummacher, Gottfried Daniel a German theologian, younger brother of F. A. Krummacher (q.v.), was born at Tecklenburg April 1, 1774. He studied at Duisburg, and became successively pastor of Barth and Wolfrath, and finally of Elberfeld, where he died Jan. 30,1837. He was thoroughly Calvinistic, not only in his tone of mind, but even in his outward aspect, and as the head of the Pietists in his district he carried their principles to their full length, even showing much unfriendliness to those who did not coincide with him. He wrote Die Wanderung Israels durch d. Wuiste (3d ed. Elberfeld, 1850-51, 2 vols.; Engl., Lond. 1837-38, 2 vols. 12mo) : — Hauspostille (Menns, 1835):- Tdagliches Manna (Elberfeld, 1838; 4th ed. 1851; Engl., Lond. 1839,12mo): — Jakob's Kampfu. Sieg (1829; Engl., Lond. 1838, 12mo); etc. See A. W. M eller, F. A. Krummacher's Leben (Bremen, 1849), i, 169; ii, 84; F. V. Krug, Krit. Gesch. d.protest.-relig.
