Lehmnann, Christian Abraham
Lehmnann, Christian Abraham, a German theologian, was born at Tütenbock Jan. 4, 1735, and was educated at the University of Wittenberg (1754-58). In 1760 he became deacon, in 1764 pastor at Lockwitz, and in 1806 senior of the district of the Dresden diocese. He died Dec. 30, 1813. He spent his life in practical activity. He was remarkably successful in an attempt to hold prayer- meetings, connected with Bible instruction, thus influencing and affecting the heart in a time when the great majority of the pulpits of Germany were occupied by rationalism. Of the few books he composed, we mention Kunzer Entwturf der Glaubenslehre für erwachsene Kindenr, etc. (1772, 8vo; new and enlarged edit., 1797, 8vo). — Doring, Gelehrte Theol. Deutschl. vol. 2, s.v.
