Lichtenstein, George Philip

Lichtenstein, George Philip a Lutheran minister of Germany, was born at Frankfort-on-the-Main, March 26, 1606, of Jewish parents. Towards the end of that same year he was baptized, together with his father, who made an open profession of Christ. Lichtenstein made his philosophical studies at Giessen and Marburg, and his theological at Strasburg. He was offered by the Swedish field-marshal, count Horn, who was at that time in Germany, the chaplaincy of the court of Sweden, but he preferred to remain at home, and was ordained to the ministry in 1634. He ministered for several years in the neighborhood of Frankfort, till he was called, in 1657, to the pastorate of St. Catharine's Church. He died February 7, 1682, his funeral sermon being preached by his friend, the famous Dr. Spener. (B.P.)
