Musius, Simon

Musius, Simon a Lutheran divine, great-grandfather of Johann Musaus, was born in 1529. He studied at Frankfort and Niiremberg, and when twenty years of age he was called as pastor to Furstenwalde, and three years later, in 1552, to Crossen, and in 1554 to Breslau. In the same year the University of Wittenberg conferred upon him the degree of doctor of divinity. In 1559 he was called as superintendent to Gotha, where he remained until 1561, when he was called as professor of theology to Jena, where, however, he did not staylong on account of his collisions with Victor Strigel. In 1565 we see him at Bremen and at Schwerin; in 1566 at Gera and Thorn; in 1570 at Coburg, which place he had to leave because of his zeal against the Crypto-Calvinists. He died at Mansfeld, July 11, 1582. He wrote, Auslegung des 1 Psalms (against Schwenkfield) (Breslau, 1556): — Nuzlicher Unterricht zum ersten Gebot (Erfurt, 1557, and after): — Auslegueng des 91 Psalms (ibid. 1565): — De Bremensi editione excitata a Sacramentariis veera narratio, etc. (1562): — Katechismus-Examen (Thorn, 1569): — Predigten vom h. Abendmahl (1568): — 116 Predigten iber Genesis (Magdeburg, 1576): — Postille oder Auslegung der Episteln (1587, etc.).
