Nolde (or Noldius), Curistian
Nolde (Or Noldius), Curistian an Icelandic divine of note, was born at Hoybya, in Sweden, in 1626, flourished as professor of theology at the University of Copenhagen, and died at the Danish capital August 22, 1633. He published Concordantiae Particularum Ebrco Chaldaicarum in quibuspartium indeclin. que occurrunt in fontibus natura et sensuum varietas ostenditur, etc. (Hafn. 1679, 4to; 2d and improved ed. by J. G. Tympe [Jena, 1734]). This is one of the books which are all but 'indispensable to the student of the Old Testament. Neither Buxtorf nor Furst, in their concordances, take note of the particles. Nolde has not only supplied this deficiency, but has also made his work a valuable lexicon of the particles, and has discussed exegetically many passages of Scripture. Horne commends this work as of the highest importance to every Biblical critic. Nolde wrote also a History of Idumaea, a Synopsis of Sacred History and Antiquities, and a Treatise on Logic. As a man Nolde was universally respected for his learning and virtues.
