Neander, Christoph Friedrich

Neander, Christoph Friedrich a German theologian and hymnologist, was born at Ekau in 1724, and was educated at Halle from 1740 to 1743. He entered the ministry, and became pastor at Kubillen, a place in the German province of West Russia; in 1755 at Grilnzhof, in the same vicinity; in 1775 at Doblensch; and in 1785 was honored with the superintendency of the whole province. He died in 1802. Neander wrote many Christian songs, of which a collection was published at Riga in 1772, and so extensive was the circulation that several editions were reached. The third edition was brought out in 1779. He also prepared a hymn-book for the province. See E. von der Recke, Leben des Christoph Feiedrich Neander, herausgegeben von Tiedge (Berlin, 1804, 8vo).
