Low, Leopold

Low, Leopold a Jewish rabbi, was born in 1811 in Moravia. He studied at Prague, and was in 1843 chief rabbi of Great Kanizca, Hungary. He took an active part in the revolution of 1848, and after its suppression was imprisoned and condemned to death. He was, however, pardoned, and in 1851 became chief rabbi at Szegedin, where he died, October 13, 1875. Low was a voluminous writer, his essays having been published in four volumes, under the title Gesammelte Schriften (Szegedin, 1876). Still valuable are his Beitrage zur judischen Alterthumskunde (Leipsic, 1870): — Allgemeine Einleitung und Geschichte der Schriftauslegung (Great Kanizca, 1855). See Furst, Bibl. Jud. 2:266. (B.P.)
